I am an independent applicant. my referee got an email from UCAS stating that due to technical issues my predicted grades have been removed from my application. The email is asking her to resupply them by email as soon as possible. What does that mean and what did I screw up? Is the application deadline still applicable? Or can she send the email say a few hours after? This is very urgent please-please-please help!

Don’t they have to be submitted by your referee? The email to your referee should be self-explanatory about what needs to be done. What happened up until this point is immaterial.

the email said to resupply the predicted grades as soon as possible. Does that mean that it is okay to send the email after the okt 15 18:00 deadline? Will this hurt my chances? what does this even mean? do the universities i applied to see that this was a ,,technical issue" (what even is that?), or do they think that I have no predicted grades? in the latter case, can they just reject me straight away?

Focus on the immediately necessary action, and not the speculation.

okay, i am trying to, but this is all a bit out of my control, since only my referee can send my predicted grades, and she said she will do so tonight - that is a few hours after the deadline. So my most important, immediately necessary question is: do you think the deadline applies in this case? Note that my application is already sent. Thank you for your help, and sorry for venting.

Only the deadline-imposer can give you/might give you the reassurance that you crave.

If your UCAS application has already been submitted to UCAS then you have made the deadline.

Some applications accidentally or otherwise miss off their predicted grades or even their qualifications. This is not a deal-breaker. Either UCAS can add them for you (as in your case) or the Unis can request them from a referee if an application does come through without them.

Just ask your referee to comply with the email and all will be well.
It sounds like a UCAS IT glitch - sometimes it happens.
