    There are quite a few people on here right? One question - did you have to get a new reference made, or did you (or are you allowed to) use your old one?

    Is there a UCAS policy on this?

    You should get a new one made. by new, i mean 1 of your teachers adjusting it because you your original reference will have predicted grades etc.

    You now have your grades so it needs updating.

    Well you have broken the terms and conditions of UCAS.

    You agreed that you hadn't changed any of the reference just before sending off the application.

    yeah, could you explain how you applied for the third time! You took 2 Gap Years? Are you classed as a mature student?

    How did you have control over it? I mean, if I apply next year, is my school involved in any way?

    I see, but is that by choice or is that by UCAS rules for people who have left school? Or did you make a conscious decision to not apply through school again?

    You could apply through your old school if you asked them, i decided not too as it would have been quicker to do it by myself. You can do it either way

    WOAH! can you do this? I thought you have to drop out first? So you are gonna complete the first year and then go to a different uni to start the first year there? Which Unis are involved may I ask?
