Hey everyone,

I am an international student and I have asked one of my teachers to write me a reference and he agreed to it. I have filled in everything in my application, but when I try to click on the 'request reference' button, nothing happens. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

Did you set up your application using a buzzword?

Hi, this happened to me and i called UCAS.

It eventually worked, i had to click the 'request reference' over 10 times for it to confirm. It seems to be a problem for many people but i promise you it works when you spam the button

Okay, I'll try this, but so you get some kind of message when it's sent right?

I'm having the same problem, I was clicking the button for about 15 minutes last night but still nothing is happening. Do I just have to keep clicking?

It seems like this is happening to everyone. You just need to keep clicking and eventually it randomly works. You will know once the request has sent as the page changes, the request button disappears, and you receive a confirmation email straight away.

i asked ucas and they told me to do this and it works. "If you can please try removing the referee details and then re adding those, then select the option for 'request reference' but do not select 'save draft', that should then send that one for you."
