    Hi

    So I am currently studying Biomedical science Foundation degree, however I have applied to start Environmental Health undergraduate degree this September. I received a message from UCAS to state that they had received my reference but the referee could not provide predicted grades. My referee is one of my lecturers on my current course.... I have emailed him so waiting for a reply but its niggling me now. Has anyone else has experience of this and know what might be the reasons for this? I wondered if it was because I have done it as an individual rather than through college itself? Any advice would be much appreciated

    It's quite common for university students or those from other countries to apply without predicted grades.

    Contact your universities to clarify that they're happy for you to apply without predictions for your foundation degree (is it definitely a foundation degree (2 yrs FdSc) and not a foundation year (1+3 years BSc))

    Thankyou for your reply. I have just been in touch with the university this morning and they have confirmed that they do require my predicted grades so I am awaiting a reply back from my lecturer. I am actually doing the first year of the Foundation degree to gain level four credits to enable me to apply for the Environmental Health degree. The university were happy to accept this option when I initially enquired about this. I decided on this option as both the Access courses in my immediate area were full. Hopefully he will provide them, just a waiting game now! Thanks for your advice
