Hey.. Just a quick question...
I know which Uni & course I want to apply for, and I am going to do so via clearing, so I need to get my UCAS form done. I haven't written my personal statement yet; would it be okay if I went to my teacher and asked for them to write my reference without a personal statement..? Did anyone here do that, or do teachers need them..?
Thanks! And please no nasty comments about how unconventional/ awkward I am!

Teachers do not need your personal statement to write your reference. I have no idea where you've got that from

Teacher sometimes find it easier to write a reference if they have your PS infront of them as it helps them understand your motivation to do the course, and your personal intrests and strengths.
Its not really necessary for them to use it though, because it can actually make them write a rather repetitive reference anyway.
