    Hello

    Anybody else doing the open access course with them? So far found them to be good with communication but on the most important bit I'm left waiting

    My application is ready to go but I can't submit without a reference from them. This was sent between Christmas and New Year to a specific email whilst I was on the phone to them but nothing back!! Called yesterday and told would pass message on to specific person but now i'm panicking with deadline looming.

    Anybody else in the same boat and/or have some advice?

    Is there anyone else you know who could provide you with a personal reference?

    Have you contacted your universities to explain the problems - they might be able to reassure you that they'll accept your application after the deadline.

    That's useful information to tell your universities - hopefully they'll be able to reassure you either way and you'll get a clear steer on what to do about your reference.
