I know what i want to study at university (geography) and i have looked at loads of uni websites and prospectuses and i think i know where i want to go and have four or five others that look good. September is the earliest you can actually send the UCAs forms, isn't it? But when do colleges start their students on filling in the forms and stuff coz i want to do it now!? Lol.

We were told to start in the summer hols but i just did mine one weekend in september, you can apply from the 1st of september it think, if your appliing to oxbridge, med or other hard things then u had to apply but oct 15th this yr but it will be a different date for u. there isnt really that much point filling in your form this early, you dont gain anything, and you dont know ur grades to put on it yet either.

The Oxbridge, Medicine, Dentistry and Vetinary Medicine/Science deadline is always the 15th of October.

We did ours in the Autumn term of the Upper Sixth. However, we were told to give it some thought over the holidays - I don't think anyone did this though! I did however, receive some guidance in the mail from our Oxbridge coordinator in the summer holidays.

I wouldn't worry too much about when you start to do the form - worry about the content of it.

it really depends on your school, but ours wanted us to sort out our personal statement and where we wanted to go before September (although many didn't) and then we filled them from septmeber to mid-October. If your thinking of applying to Oxbridge then the sooner you start thinking about it the better.
