predicted ucas issue

i got sent this from kings admissions for my current ucas extra applicaiton

“We require your official predicted / achieved A-level grades to be able to consider your application further. These should be on letter-headed paper and signed and/or stamped.


Please note the copy of provisional results are not acceptable and we will only consider the copy of official A-level cert.

We would be grateful if you can provide the requested information by uploading it to your application portal”


im so confused because i already sent them my official grades certificate for OCR containing my 2 current achieved alevels. I dont have any other document for those except the one with my scores from school?

and i also asked my external/additional reference to email the email admissions gave me with my predicted grade. (im a resit student and my school couldnt predict me) From her official/professional email.

I applied previously (different course) they didnt say anything about the predicted grade or additional achieved information.

Not sure if they need her to hand write a letter then stamp it (with what?..) shes a tutor and has a professional email, that was previously accepted - as i had (prior to applying) confirmed with that they would allow this

If you sat the A level last year, you should have received your certificate by now.

It should look something like this (just one I pulled off the internet) [see below post]

If you don't have this you need to contact your old school to arrange collection/delivery.

As for your tutor, she could esign it, but it by headed they mean it needs to have the logo of the organisation//the name of the tutor's company.

thank you for the responsee

yeah thats why i was confused😭 thats exactly what i sent them. maybe they missed me sending it then.

i found my tutor through tutorful or i think it was superprof? shes not working for a school i think. could the headed letter just have her name & private tutor w the e-signature? or does it have to have the tutorful logo

also if hypothetically i asked my new tutor to send the predicted grade, would the uni be fine with it? since they were already sent the predicted once but i dont think it was accepted^

my old tutor who i originally asked is not answering and takes a long time to get back. im worried if i delay it further i wont get the offer :/

Kings has a reputation for bad admin, so I would just prompt them again that you've already sent the certificate. Then again, it could just be a generic message which they haven't bothered to edit for you.

In terms of the headed letter, potentially - especially if they state that they are a private tutor (so private tutor and signature, unless they are employed by tutorful/superprof).

Letterhead seems okay, don't know if Kings would clock its a template or not.

If your new tutor sent it originally, then it makes sense for them to send it again.

ahh okay. yeah the admin has not been great so far :/ & no my new tutor didnt, my old one (who taught me during alevels) sent the first one.. but she took around 5 days (with my constant pestering) or so to send my previous ref, so i feel like by the time she resends the correct version itll pass their 7 day deadline
