    I've sent my UCAS application to my school twice now and they are refusing to send it to UCAS until I make the changes that have been "suggested" to me.

    The suggestions that have been made are for me to take out achievements that both I and my form tutor believe would be beneficial to my application so I do not understand why the careers advisor is telling me to remove them.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience and am I obligated to make the changes?

    No. You should have a three-way discussion between your careers advisor , yourself and your form tutor to resolve the matter.

    Maybe talking to them about it directly would help to resolve the issue?

    Ultimately, you have ultimate say over your PS, your referee can't change it and nobody else should have access to your application before UCAS receive it.

    So what is submitted is under your control.

    If your careere advisor is your referee and is being difficult, that's a different matter.
