    I'm a non-EU student, so I took my A level (first sitting) in Oct/Nov 2014. I'm still waiting for results, and I daresay it's too late to be thinking of applying through UCAS by the 15 January deadline. So, say the results come out on the first week of February, when might I start going to my sixth form and asking for references? I'll be applying for the June deadline, won't I, but will the good universities still be accepting places?

    Also, I still cannot for the life of me decide whether to study chemistry or psychology yet in Uni. I'm hoping for a government scholarship, and they have higher grade requirements if you want to study chemistry. So, no matter what, I still need to have a look at my results before I apply to any universities right??

    Honestly, it sounds like your best bet would be to take a gap year. Even if you weren't applying part the deadline, you aren't even sure of what you want to study. That's a lot of money to waste.

    I would take a gap year if I were you. Now, I'm not certain about this but I was given the impression that after January 15th, the universities can (and usually do) look at your application, but they don't HAVE to look at it. If I were you, I'd wait, take a gap year, then go to University. Good luck!
