    As I wrote here https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4506196 I basically sent a blank reference with the application. Days ago I started receiving emails from some of the schools I applied to telling me that my application was "under initial review" and that if I happened to have "any additional queries" I should contact them. Do you think I should email them explaining the situation or should I wait for them to ask for a reference?

    Are you sure it's blank? You wouldn't be able to see a complted reference in Apply.

    Ring UCAS to find out if your referee sent through a reference or not.

    If it is definitely blank then contact your universities first thing on Monday (by phone) to ask what they expect you to do.
