    So I'm on a one year Access course and I have applied for UCAS. A couple of my university choices have been asking for predicted grades, which I don't have yet as my teachers haven't updated them.I have told my choices that I can't provide them, and that after asking my referee for them, I can't say when they will get provided by my referee either. The universities aren't really paying any attention to what I'm saying, and keep asking for them and giving 5 day deadlines or my application will be withdrawn. What can I do ? These are my top two choices that are ready to drop my application if I can't provide my predicted grades. My referee is really not helping either, and just saying that she'll update when she gets them.

    Ask your referee to phone them up and explain.
