    Right, I am applying to Newcastle, Dundee, Aberdeen and Southampton.
    Does anyone know if these universities sought references out directly? I am in a bit of **** spot as I cannot contact my personal tutor but I have another person currently trying to write one as we speak. Any help is really appreciated before I **** myself, not about to be rejected due to a late application.

    Are you applying via a school/college or have you made an independent application? If its via the school, they'll have to input a reference before they can send it off.

    I literally had exactly the same problem this morning, basically you just need any tutor you can get hold of to confirm and upload your reference. Once they've done that it's plain sailing with the rest of the application. For most Post graduate medicine places you do need an academic reference from a tutor. Good luck

    For most places if you're still at Uni or its only been a year or so they need an academic tutor but chances are you're going to have more luck with the reference you can get now than with a late application. You could always contact the unis directly after your application has gone in and ask if they would like you to submit your original reference plan.
    Good luck
