    Hi

    So it is 18:47 now and my UCAS form still hasn't sent it's my own fault. I entered my refree details and realised I couldn't mark as 'section complete'till the refree had written the reference and sent it to UCAS D: so I clicked the 'send request' thing and now it is an hour later and I still haven't got it yet. I'm worried incase it'll be tomorrow that I get the reference back. The lecturer is actually good at fast replies to emails so I am hoping I'll get it soon.
    I emailed my choices explaining the situation and asking if late applicants get consideration, but I'm still scared..

    SO my question is, if I get my refrence today, as in the 15th of January and end up sending my application off today, do you think that'll be so bad? Or is it late no matter what once past the 18:00 deadline

    It is late now.

    You will be best waiting for your choices to reply to you question about late applications (or ring them all up tomorrow for instant answers - take names and job titles of the people you speak to). That way you can avoid wasting one or more of your choices on unis that aren't taking late apps.

    it's late, I'm afraid, but yu have 7 days to change choices if you phone universities and they say they wont take late applications. These days a lot go into clearing so if your grades are high enough some will probably still consider you.

    The deadline only marks the point when Unis have to give all applications 'equal consideration'. After this date Unis can declare a course 'closed' and not accept any more applications, however most courses WILL still be open for several more weeks before Unis actually start closing them.

    All you can do is get your completed application in to UCAS as quickly as you can, and keep your fingers crossed. It is pointless phoning Unis as most wont have made any decisions about closing courses this quickly after the deadline. Just get that application in as quickly as you can!

    It's not pointless phoning unis. It's completely the opposite. Whilst I realise you're probably trying to be reassuring, you're giving wrong advice.
