Hi. This is a really good idea
What went wrong: Don't know much about how UCAS works so completely messed up on the timings with getting a reference and sending it off on time. I thought I could send off my UCAS after inputting my referee details but clearly not.
Courses: History with a foundation year
Unis: Durham, Leeds, Sheffield, Notts, York.
I have just received my track log in details. Could someone tell me how i can go about emailing the unis to explain the situation?
Thanks for making this thread.
I am on a gap year and contacted my ex tutor for a reference. I put him down on ucas through my college but from there i do not know what happened.
My reference has apparently been sitting with my college as my reference section was not ticked. I have emailed my tutor countless of times but time was running out so i had to send mine off without a reference.
inb4 "you could have got someone else to do your reference"-no, i could have not as my ex tutor agreed to be my referee and it was too late by then.
I am now in the process of calling my university to explain my situation. I still can't bring myself to explain what happened.
Received emails from three of my uni choices saying its fine to send a reference later. and they didn't seem too annoyed about it. Good start so far
good luck everyone
