Hello, last year I applied to the university of Oxford for law and was unsuccessful. I'd planned to take a gap year anyway so I thought I might as well reapply. I'm getting under way with my application, and I'm wondering if I should have the teacher who wrote my previous reference write it again this year?

Fyi, I am an international applicant and no teacher at my school had any idea how to write a UCAS reference last year. So, the teacher who wrote mine last year is now the only teacher I could ask that has any experience writing a UCAS reference.

Yes if they are willing ... it is a sensible idea.

Yes, it needs to be someone familiar with your academic work, so your previous ref is still the most suitable person.
