Using the same school reference for re-applying

I applied to university in 2014 and then did not go. Can I use the same school reference after a gap year? It was a great one and my gap year referees are not very good at replying to requests.

Hi Jamie,

Yes that should be OK. Depending a bit on what you did in the gap year, the academic reference from School is likely to be the more relevant for university entry.
