    I applied 2012 and deferred to 2013 entry however did not make a new 2013 application.

    Am I able to apply for the 2013 UCAS cycle even though I have an offer. Obviously I plan on losing this offer if I do, I just want to know if I am able to do it.

    You need to withdraw from your deferred place before making a new application. But if you do that it's fine

    Aren't you too late for a 2013 application?

    Wasn't the closing date in January for September 2013 entry?

    You can still submit a late application, it's just not guaranteed equal (or any) consideration, so worth checking with unis before you apply.

    I never quite understood that 'equal consideration' part.

    If they say they are still accepting applications, then surely they are going to consider me? Or does it just mean they will take the earlier applicant if it came to a tie break or something?

    In theory yes, if they've got one offer left to give and it either goes to you or your clone who is identical in every way apart from they applied before January 15th, the other person will get the offer.

    In practice I don't know to what extent you'd actually be penalised for applying late if they did decide to consider you. If they're still taking applications (check before you apply) then I can't see why they would want to penalise you.

    how far does the information on UCAS hold true? Most courses state they are open for new applications and extra, obviously I'll check after Easter, but would this usually be updated?

    By default, all courses are shown as being in Extra, and the unis have to opt out rather than opt in. I wouldn't rely on those listings alone, it's definitely worth a phone call or email to the unis you're interested in to make sure they are indeed still accepting applications :yes:
