Answer: When the recommendation task shows “Complete” it means that the request has been sent by the applicant to the referee. If you want to ensure that the recommendation has been received to support your application, please follow up with your referee asking them to check if the task shows as “Complete” at their end.

I have submitted my application/submission which currently shows as 100% Complete. What should I do now?
