    Just get your application done as soon as possible to get it out the way! This way you don't have to worry about it and can just concentrate on getting the grades that you need.

    I started my PS mid-August, submitted to school at the end of September for references etc to be attached, and it was sent from UCAS October 20th. Don't worry about starting now.

    Get your exams out of the way first and then start collecting ideas for it. Start jotting down reasons for wanting to study your subject as and when they come to you. Note down the names of books you're reading which are relevant. Try to get a draft done before the summer holidays and show it to your tutor, then you can work on it in the summer holidays. Your exam results may change your ideas a bit. Aim to send it off before the October half term if you can, but don't rush to be too early in case you change your mind when the reality of A2 starts to bite. You'll find quite a few threads from people who were in a rush to get theirs off and then found themselves regretting their choices and being forced to go through Extra when they changed their minds.
