    Hi everyone, after finishing my A-Levels last year, I decided to try to get a full time job instead of uni. After searching for months I have found nothing.
    I have recently decided that I want to attend university this year, but I've missed this year's application deadline!
    Is there any way I can apply late and still get a place?

    You can still apply through UCAS, it'll just be classed as a late application. This means that universities don't have to consider you for courses, but more than likely they will

    Make sure you contact the unis you're interested in before applying to check that they have spaces

    What unis got back to you?
    How long did you have to wait before you heard anything back? I sent mine in on the 11th of March so I'm worried D:

    I commented on this question in the Portsmouth thread I think. I applied at the end of February and got offers from all five of my choices so you can definitely still get in

    I applied late and got an offer the same day the uni received it - of course they placed a condition on it that I can't meet by the deadline so they're now 'reviewing' this decision but, just check with the uni first, make sure they have places available and will consider a late application.

    I heard back from 3 of them within 10 days of sending my application off, the forth took about 3 weeks

    Yup I posted the same question in the applicant threads of the unis I'm applying to.. Portsmouth, Plymouth and Southampton.

    Phew! Congrats! My grades are just average though so I'm nervous that I won't get any offers :/
