    So I’m freaking out a bit cause IT’S MISSING.
    It was there yesterday.

    Basically, I called up UCAS cause after I put the buzzword in, when it asked which form I was in I clicked ‘don’t know’ cause I’m on my gap year and my previous form wasn’t there (new year group).
    That was a problem cause if I sent my application in, my school wouldn’t know which form tutor to send it to to attatch my refence.
    So I called up, and had to redo the buzzword thing before waiting for my college to confirm.

    Anyway, checked earlier, now the reference bit is GONE 😭.

    If you haven’t guessed, I’m applying via college even though I’m on my gap year (cause they said they’d help)

    PLEASE HELP ME 😭

    I'm applying this year (not gap year) and there is no reference section to my or any of my friends ucas forms.

    We completed all of the details, paid and sent. It then gets sent to your college who add the references themselves and once that's done they send it to ucas and you can start using track.

    I'm a still waiting for all of my teachers to finish their references and my form teacher to put it all into one reference and onto my application.

    It doesnt show for you but after you send, it goes to your tutor/someone inyour school/college and they can add the reference before submitting to ucas.after you first submit, they will confirm it has been sent to your tutor for referencing

    Thank you! But how would the college know which tutor will attatch the reference (cause I don’t have a form tutor)?

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean - when they put the references in, they're all written as coming from the same person at the college (usually the headteacher).
    If there's someone at the college who coordinates the applications, they could be the person who actually puts the reference in for you. Perhaps talk to them to put your mind at rest?

    They will have your records, and they will decide who writes your reference.
