    Do we ever get to see it? I know that we're allowed but will it ever become available without asking for it? I feel a bit awkward about asking for it but I'm keen to see it prior to any interviews or anything.

    I never saw mine :no: But my application was a bit rushed at the end because the woman spent the whole month after I finished/paid faffing about before I went and yelled at her to do my reference :p:

    Just ask whoever is writing it for you if you can see what they put.

    I do know it's written and everything, and my principal has alluded to it and seemed to imply that it was good, i'd just like to read it and be flattered i guess hahaha.
    i'd feel a bit weird about asking though.

    i don't think you are supposed to see it, but some schools are very lenient. Just ask. It can do no harm!

    I had to ask to see mine, but if your teachers are as lazy as mine were, your reference will be word-for-word the same as your school report. Huzzah! :cool:

    At the very least you should be allowed to read your reference to see if there are any factual inaccuracies about you in it.

    I was shown my references by the teacher who deals with all the applications although I didn't ask to see them. If your school has someone who deals with all the applications then he/she should sit down with you before you send it off and show you everything that is being sent to make sure your 100% sure you want to submit the application as it stands.

    If not, just ask to see it. :p:

    Ask to see it anyway. When i was applying, some people got to see theirs, some didn't.

    Oh great - my application's going off soon so I probably will. Ego boost on the horizon.
