I want to apply to uni through clearing for 08 entry, and as far as im aware i can do this still.
the only problem is, i can write a personal statement and fill the form in and stuff, but i dont have a reference as my former sixth form tutor wont be able to write it in the next week before summer hols start (i havent asked her but it would be a bit harsh if i did at this late stage, and she doesnt really like me anyway).
will i be able to still apply without a reference?
id like to add that im a mature student and already have my a level results from 3 years ago, and was told the reference is basically to say tht i would make the predicted grades and stuff, (which doesnt apply to me as i have the grades already).
someone mentioned that asking the uni if they would accept me without a reference may work, but how would i go about that? what would i say, and how would i go about it? ive got a few unis in mind that should still have spaces, but i really have to get in this year.
sorry for the essay, im really stressing at how lazy ive been
Have you been tested?
