Supporting reference In addition to your personal statement, your application will also require a supporting reference. This is usually written by someone who knows you academically, most commonly a teacher or college tutor. The reference should include information on: • how you work academically; • how you interact with other students and teachers; • your subject/career interests; • confirmation that you have good interpersonal and communication skills; and • if applicable, details of any circumstances (either personal, social or educational) that may have either disrupted your studies or caused any disadvantage. The reference should not be generic or repeat the examination results already achieved. It should, however, reaffirm the information you have provided in your personal statement.
