    my referee just told me over the phone that he misspelled my name...instead of MOSTAKIN he wrote MOSTAKIM.
    he wrote my name... thrice in the letter.... for the first two time its right... but at the end of the letter when he again used my name.. he made that mistake. I have already submitted my application for uni of Oxford. what should I do now..? UCAS says there is no way to fix it... my MAT went bad too... maybe. my dream of study at oxford gonna remain dream forever

    It won't matter. Unis will know that your referee wrote the reference and that you didn't control the content - so they will know that you didn't make the mistake.

    It shouldn't be an issue. It's close enough that they'll be able to see it was just an honest mistake/typo. Especially as the first two mentions were spelt correctly. Don't panic.
