Is it an advantage to get an early application form in? Yet I then wouldnt be able to go to some open days (eg oct/nov), but obviously would have a look round the area/uni myself.
What do you think?
You want to know when to apply to get an unconditional?
If this is what you're asking, it doesn't really make a huge amount of difference.
I applied at the begining of November after my A-levels and got unconditionals for all
If you already have your A-level results, and the university want to offer you a place with those grades, then they'll gie you an unconditional offer whenever you apply, as you have fulfilled all the conditions they would require you to have fulfilled in order to take the course.
The chances of getting an unconditional offer before you have A-levels is very small.
I want to know how much of an advantage it is getting an early application in?
Especially as I'll have the grades already.
I WILL have an unconditional offer as finished A-levels applying this year.
There are lots of open days over the summer, so try to go to those. It is generally thought that applying early is best, but obviously don't make it so early you rush your application.
I'm sure it doesn't make a huge difference, but don't leave it too late. Definitely aim for the end of October/early November. Don't expect an early response, some Universities take 4-5 months!
