    Thank you for your application to King's College London.

    In order to continue assessing your application, please can you provide the following information within 7 days:

    • Predicted grades for your current qualification, to include modules and subjects, from a verifiable academic reference
    • Academic reference from a verifiable academic email address or on headed paper and signed

    Please provide this in a letter and upload it as an attachment on the King’s Apply messaging system. If you are having difficulty in uploading your documents, please contact us through a King’s Apply message or call us on +44 (0) 20 7848 7000 and the Admissions Team will be happy to help you.

    We would be grateful if you could provide the above information as soon as possible, and within 7 days of the date of this message, or your application may be made unsuccessful. Once received, we will continue to assess your application. If you are unable to provide this information within the deadline for any reason please let us know so that we can advise further.

    As a disclaimer I don't have any experience with KCL's admissions system, but as a layperson I agree that this sounds odd. I would recommend recommend replying (or if they've supplied an email address to contact, email them there) and explaining that your academic reference and predicted grades have already been submitted via UCAS. This could just be a mistake or there could be a genuine reason why they're requesting this but regardless, it doesn't strike me as being particularly clear from this email.

    Have you received any communication from other universities you've applied to that could indicate something is off with your application?

    1. Email KCL now and/or ring them on Monday
    2. The only organisation that can send your predicted grades and reference is your school so there's nothing you can do about that until Monday anyway.
    3. They're asking you to upload it, so you don't need to wait for it to get posted.

    KCL isn't going to ask the impossible of you and, even if this isn't a mistake and they actually have a reason for demanding these documents, if you're unable to get them in time then as long as you stay in contact with KCL and explain what the problem is, you will be fine.
