Here’s an overview for you, so that you’ll know what to discuss with them.
There is actually an option to not include a reference, but this could only happen if you contact all your chosen universities and colleges and they agree that you don’t need one – just confirm this on the reference page of your application.
If you're applying from prison you need a statement from the prison authorities too – saying you're suitable and available for the start date.
