Wrong Referee Address watch

    Hi,

    Today I asked my referee for his postal address in order to complete the reference section of my UCAS application. I wrote it down, confirmed, and sent the link. 20 minutes later I noticed that automatic typing correction had changed one of the words in the name of the street. Moreover, I forgot to specify the country, which is relevant, since I am an international applicant. Now I cannot change it and my reference has already been completed.
    Since it's weekend I cannot contact UCAS.

    What should I do?

    EDIT:
    I contacted UCAS, and they said there would be no problem, specially because I'm an international applicant and my referee's address is unlikely to be needed.
    However, if someone is in this situation, they did gave me the option of calling the support centre in order to reset the reference field of the application. Just keep in mind that this will require your referee to provide the reference again. That is why I chose not to do it, but it might be relevant in other cases.
