    Hi,

    So, I sent my reference requests over a week ago and my academic one has come through but not the second one from the school.

    I emailed my referee to let her know in advance and then emailed her again to ask when she can submit it by but I have had no response.

    She's my old primary school teacher and I want to consider working there if I become a teacher hence I'm wanting to maintain good ties.

    What should I do?

    Has it been half term?

    A week or two isn’t unreasonable. It’s not a five minute job to put together a reference.

    Depending what you’ve said already you could always phone the school and try to arrange a time to speak (either in person or over the phone).

    True, I think I have just been panicking because all my friends have sent their applications off, had interviews, and heard back.
