    hi.

    i'm applying from Germany.

    I was just wondering if anybody still has their reference ?
    I just wanted to show my tutor how it is normally done.

    One more thing:
    And am I right that my tutor collects references from
    my subject teachers (maths, chemistry) and writes a overall reference??

    I'd love to help, but like everyone else in my sixth form, I didn't get to see my reference.

    It's up to your referee how he/she collects information to write your reference, but that's what my referee did.

    Your tutor should look at http://www.ucas.com/students/startap...ly09/reference and http://www.ucas.com/advisers/online/references. These will have all the information he needs.

    Hi there!

    I asked my Maths-LK-teacher who is also my tutor - you know what I mean. It is not necessary to write an overall reference. You know, we say "ein Empfehlungsschreiben", and I guess, your tutor is able to understand what "ein Empfehlungsschreiben" is.

    Do most people not see their references? I was shown mine and asked if I wanted to change/add anything.

    Hmm, you don't get to see your reference? How do you add the reference to the UCAS application then? o:
