    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
    I see, but if you apply privately, dont you still need a reference from someone at school?

    Never heard that one before, I'm pretty sure it's the same deadline as the other UCAS applications

    did any of you apply whilst at university? im applying whilst at university and just wanted to know if anyone wrote on their ps that they were already at university, because im not doing this, just wanted to know thanks
    Hi, I am also applying to anither Uni for another course whilst still at Uni. I haven't met anyone else who is doing it though. I am going to put that I will have to withdraw for medical reasons on my PS which is true and also my personal tutor is going to be my reference so I have to admit it really.

    Can they not already tell that you are at Uni?

    no not really but the only thing is that i dont want to say that im currently at university because then the universities that i am applying to will expect me to drop out, and i would rather wait until i have offers elsewhere

    I am a reapplicant. I need to improve on my bio grade this Jan. But I have BB in maths& english. Two questions: If im applying as an independent student and i am sitting it in school. must a school teacher do my reference?? because last year my teacher took a MONTH doing it!! im hoping to get it sent off this week. ive done my personal statement, adding final touches.. but i really dont want to wait another month for him to do my reference.. even tho the deadline is 15th jan.. id like it off.. hes kinda forgetful too!! alsooo i see someone is applying to kings , do u no if they discriminate against reapplicants? i did call, they said i would get top priority, but because i had a free option i put them down. does ne 1 no ne different?
    thanks !

    I applied last year, went to Uni for about 3 months and decided I didn't like it. So I took another year out, got my head together, made a decision and am applying again for 2009 entry.

    When I contacted my form tutor informing her, she asked if I wanted to apply through the school again, to which I declined, much quicker to do it independantly, so then she e-mailed me the reference.

    I don't think there is a problem with UCAS for this, as long as the tutor definately wrote it.

    Nice and easy :yep:

    Good luck

    This is my fourth time doing UCAS (though I didn't actually send it off the third time). I've had a new reference each time because otherwise they would be hugely out of date and irrelevant.

    She emailed you the reference? Could you then not change it? Or did you change it a little (reasonably), email it back to her, she checked it, made sure your changes to it were fine, and then sent to unis?

    Are you SURE you are allowed to do this? And also, if you want Econ at UCL while you do stats at UCL, cant you just asked to switch courses without having to reapply? Or not?

    I was beginning to worry about this but I've just got it sorted - doing UCAS second time and using a new reference. Got it done quicker than I expected too

    BUT my question is - do you HAVE to get a new one? If I apply independently or even through school, is the tutor FORCED to have to write a new one, or can we just leave the reference as it is?

    2strong, the reason why im not allowed to get a transfer is because economics at ucl is full and hence im going to have to reapply
