    So I'm doing my exams externally and was going to use my private tutor as my referee but on the referee details section of UCAS it asks for their organisation with a * meaning it is a mandatory detail. My tutor doesn't work for an organisation so does that mean they can't be my referee? Or should I just put "no organisation" or "not applicable" in that box?

    Hiya:hi:

    I've popped your thread into this sub-forum so that you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    I'd suggest putting something like "private tutor" in that box, but I'm not an expert:dontknow:

    You need your previous A-levels as well, but I would put their name in the originisation box

I'm taking my exams in a local school which I do not attend (I'm just going to do the exams there as an external candidate) how would I put this on my UCAS as well as have my private tutor predict my grade otherwise I will not get offers from my desired unis

    Put part time attendance for the exam centre- ask your College for a reference, but you won't have a prediction for Maths as your college can't give you one.
