Once you have completed and entered your Personal Statement on the UCAS Apply website, inform your Tutor that this is done and also let them know what you are hoping to study at University. You do not need to have made your final choices at this point.
Your tutor will then request references from each of your subject tutors.
Once completed, these will be collated, along with some information about the school, yourself and your predicted final grades entered into UCAS Apply by your tutor.
Predicted Grades:Do not ask subject tutors to inflate your predicted grades, as this may lead to receiving offers that you cannot meet. Ensure that you apply to courses that match your ability.
The reference needs to be approved by the Head of Sixth form before your application can be completed.
The later you leave your request for references, the longer this will take as there will be a queue to be processed.
