    The deadline is January 15th, so if you're applying this year you might want to hurry with the references.

    You apply as an individual on UCAS and get one of your tutors to write you a reference. No problems at all.
    thank you for answering
    just one thing i wanted to ask you that what is the reference i mean like i know what does reference means but what does he have to write in the reference
    and can i apply for the universities after i have done all of my A level exams (since i am taking all of my A levels in May/June in 2011 )
    or do i have to apply now

    For oct 2011 entry you need to apply with your predicted grades by Jan 15. So you have around two weeks to get your personal statemetn + reference etc. sorted.

    They might consider your application if it's received by 30th June but they don't have to unless you send it off before 15th January. If I were you I'd try and get it in in the next fortnight if you want to start this September. Otherwise you're going to find it hard to get in where you want and might be stuck with whatever's left in clearing.

    thank you really very much for your answer
    i will be giving three A level exams all together that means like 16 to 18 exams
    so i will apply to the university after my A level results come right?
    You can apply with predicted grades if you want to. If you won't have any AS results to declare, the predicted grades will be especially important.

    Yes, you can, but if you apply then, that will be in the next application cycle, with the current year 12s, and you'll have to take a gap year (you'll also have the higher fees).

    If you apply after the 15th, your application won't get "equal consideration" - they might or might not ignore it, and if it's the choice between you and someone else, they'll take someone else.
    There are some Art and Design courses with a March 24th deadline apparently, but I don't know about those. The Medicine, Cambridge ad Oxford deadlines were October 15th.

    There's something called 'adjustment' after people get their results, but you can only do it if you apply normally, get an offer, firm it, then get better grades. It's not for you, to put it bluntly.

    You know that for undergraduate university you apply via UCAS, right? I'll assume your an undergrad-to-be. Look at this:
    http://www.ucas.ac.uk/parents/applying/whentoapply

    If you apply whenever and get rejected by 5 universities, you can go through Clearing and then Extra, but those don't have all courses and universities.

    hey thanks for you answer

    so does this rule which is applying before January 15 work with all the universities in the world because i heard from a guy who studies in university of Toronto which is in Canada and he told me that you should apply at least 2 months before September or right after you have finished your A level exams
    so are the rules different with each country


    i really thank you for helping me so much

    Please read the stickied threads at the top of the forum - links also in my sig below.

    The timings we have explained to you in this and your other thread relate to the UCAS system and no other. We have no expertise on application systems in other countries, although there is some information in the International Study forum.

    It's different for different countries and universities. For the USA, the deadline is tomorrow. For McGill in Canada, it's January 15th I think. I haven't looked at any others. If you hurry, you should definitely be able to get an application off to McGill in time.
    For Germany, it's later in the year, but it varies a little by course and university.
    For Australia, it says this: If you want to be considered for admission to semester 1 courses (starting in February/March 2011), you are encouraged to submit your application by 29 October 2010. Applications will be accepted until 3 February 2011 for semester 1 courses. Remember that some courses, particularly those with additional selection criteria, have early closing dates.

    Some American/Canadian universities recommend applying after you have your results, for the next year, because in the US system people already have heir results when applying.

    You can apply now, with predicted grades for your A levels. If unis are interested they will make you offers based on those predicted grades. If you meet the terms of any offer you accept as your firm choice (or your insurance choice if you miss your firm offer) you will have a place at that university for September/October 2011. If you fail to meet the terms of both your firm and your insurance choices you will be eligible for Clearing.

    Please read the threads I linked you to - these explain the application procedure, as does the information on the UCAS website, for that matter.

    If you have certificated AS grades you must declare those as well as the IGCSEs.
