    I'm in the same boat and i don't even start college until tomorrow. You can make a UCAS account when you want but you need a buzzword off your college so they can attach their references

    I know i just got my timetable last night too . Basically every college has a word that can allow them to attach references to your UCAS application, it asks for it before you start your application, your tutors will be able to give it to you. If you apply to 5 universities i think it is £24 and you pay for it by card when you send it off

    Had my first day of year 13 and realised I'm ahead on UCAS than what is expected... I'm aiming to submit my application by the end of November, but I'm scared because my grades need to improve for me to go to uni.

    Nah not yet but they're assuring me currently that I can improve. Anything would be better than my AS grades tbh. I just need to get to uni as far as I am concerned.

    I have two form tutors this year, one who has known me since year 7, so I need to send it to them and see what they think of my first draft. I just hate writing about myself as I never see myself in a positive light so this is so hard for me to do!

    Lol this year is already stressing me out.

    My school has encouraged me to apply to Cambridge, and I've got nothing to lose so I'm just going to go for it. But that means - AS FM, early application, entrance exam prep and possible interview prep.

    I think I've got a 0.00005% chance of actually getting in because I've got an 88UMS average but a miracle could happen and I was one of the top in the year, and like a teacher at my school said "better to be rejected by them and not yourself"

    I still haven't got my 5 choices yet and I'm still visiting open days (I have 7 choices at the moment) but our school really wants us to send our applications off in October... but Swansea Open Day is on 29th October (because I'm already going to Leicester on the 15th). So that's awkward and I'm not really sure what to do
