    I think I started looking around Easter 2007 for 2008 entry, so start thinking now...just subject choice, find out what unis take access course entrants etc. The universities often have open days in July and September (pre-application). Individual departments may also have visit days, so check on the uni websites

    If you can't make the open days then it may be worth contacting the department to see if you can have a look around some other time.

    Lol no worries, I was pretty excited too My college were pretty on the ball though, we had personal statement drafts done by July, applications sent mid-October and I had all my offers by mid-January. It worked quite well really because I had something clear to aim for with my final A2 exams.

    Best of luck with your application
