    I personally wouldn't, if there may be a chance they could copy it or post it online, as people can still apply to UCAS until 20th September, so I think technically you could still get caught out for plagiarism.

    However, if like me, your friends have all applied and they wouldn't steal it anyway, then you should be fine!

    I was going to send it to a friend who's already in uni, but it makes sense to be cautious.

    That makes sense! Thank you both!
