If your completed application reaches UCAS before the deadline then it will receive 'equal consideration' from the Unis you are applying to.
You are therefore no disadvantaged by applying 1 day before the deadline rather than last November.

It is a good idea if your referee can complete your reference as soon as possible - simply because the UCAS site will get clogged with last minute applications in the day or so before the deadline. Once you are back at college, check progress with your referee, and in particular make sure that they are aware of the UCAS deadline.

I will do that, thank you although i dont agree with the "equal consideration", if that was the case then why do some people already have offers :/
