    Hi there,

    Im a mature student applying for 2018 entry and my referee (my employer) has just informed me that she made a mistake on my reference letter but has already sent it through - she put the names of on of the units Im applying to.

    Does anyone know if this can be fixed? Can she just resend the reference letter? Im kind of panicking

    Thanks in advance!

    If it has been sent to UCAS then there's not much you can do now other than a complete cancellation of your application and starting the whole thing again from scratch. That would be a massive over-reaction to a minor mistake that shouldn't affect your chances of an offer.

    If you're worried then once you get your Track login details from UCAS contact each of your universities to explain this was a mistake from your employer (who doesn't normally provide UCAS references) and that you're definitely interested in their university.

    I know this reply is very late but I thought I should update this in case anyone ever has the same problem. My application itself had not been sent, my employer had just submitted my reference on their end. What I did was call up UCAS and they deleted the reference letter. I then asked my employer to resubmit the corrected version.
