    I sent my referee the request for a reference today, I'm already a university student and had many deadline due this week which resulted to me being late in my application, what do I do?
    I've emailed him also, however there's no reply yet

    Have I got no chance in getting a place in university this year?

    Every part of my application is done except the reference, is it still possible get an offer? Should I call my university choices on Monday?

    Calling them won't help you, are you applying to second year entry?

    Ah, I think you may be too late for the deadline in this case, if you send it off without it they could reject you straight off

    Call your universities today (and check social media and their website) They may have someone answering the phone and be able to confirm that they will accept an application without a reference (and the reference to come later on).

    If they won't accept an application without a reference then ask if your course would be open to late applications from current university students.

    Do not apply after the deadline to any choice that hasn't confirmed that they're open for applications.
