Hello, my name is WillHughes_!Watch
I'm interested in... Rugby, Football, Biology, Spanish
My study level is... A-level (A2)
My advice would be to apply as soon as possible once you return for A2 year, I had my application sent off by the October after I had started my 2nd year and had offers by the start of November, which was great motivation for me over the Xmas period. If you leave it late, there can normally be a mad rush of students also trying to do the same, and I had one or two friends sending off their application 2 or 3 minutes before the deadline, which is stressful especially when you need to be studying
A good idea is to start planning/writing your personal statement the summer between AS and A2, because when you come back, you may need to tweak it a few times before you add it to your application. Your personal statement can be just as important as your results, so Its better to spend time over the summer writing it out, rather than trying to write it up when you have the added pressures of needing to study
Hope this helps!
