    You mean tutor as opposed to teacher or is this another one with the false reference (there have been a few)?


    The referee has to id who they are with contact details. Normally that would id hem with the school.

    If someone puts down false details then that is a fraud and if discovered it can have your ucas application cancelled or you could have your uni place revoked even if you have started.

    Then its fine as long as they fill out the reference properly. Look on the ucas site for a guide.

    I know someone who got his parents to send off his application, and predictions and reference at home and he got offers from universities as well like Kings college etc
    How is this possible and ucas didnt find out?

    That would be a fraud with the results as mentioned previously.
