Hi guys,

I am re-applying for uni in my gap year as an independent applicant, so not through my school. I have a tutor who tutors only me and he is a pharmacist in a hospital. Can he be my UCAS referee and write me my reference and predicted grades or is this not allowed? If it is allowed, will this disadvantage me with unis because he’s not a qualified academic teacher (i.e. would they not take it as seriously as they would from an actual teacher)?

I will appreciate any help

Thanks for the reply! I’m sorry I didn’t quite understand what you mean by officially tutoring me? He tutors me ans only me has no other students.
