    Hi guys, i'm still waiting for UCAS to process my application but i'm very nervous because i feel every hour spent waiting is just filling up the spots.
    As i said in another thread i want to go london met but i'm worried that by time UCAS process my app, all the spots will be filled, seeing as this uni is 'unpopular' on this forum, i was hoping it'd have less applicants then other unis.

    Does anyone know roughly how long i have a window to try and apply? I'm getting very nervous waiting...

    It really depends on the number of students who apply for the university / course and how many places they have unfilled. I think, though, that the last date for clearing is the 20th of September for this year.

    None of us can say, but clearing does carry on until October, so you have plenty of time to potentially find a place.

    The most popular courses at the most popular universities will fill fastest, but even these are unlikely to all be already full, as they will have made verbal offers yesterday, some of which will have been rejected by students as students often try to get 2-3 verbal offers at a time. You will have more choice the faster you act, but there is no point in worrying about something which at this stage you can't controll.

    It depends on the individual Uni entirely!

    I'm sure it also depends on the popularity of the course.

    Well i'm going to be applying for london met and according to this forum it's not a very popular place, i want to do computer networks and IT security so i'm praying it will still have spaces, i'm planning on applying ASAP, just waiting for UCAS to process my application! Thanks for the responses you guys have put my mind at ease a little bit more.
