    I kmoe thr deadline was a whileback but i didnt want to even try to apply without knowing what i wanted to study, in all honesty im still not entirely sure... Although I think I'll be able to find a course that's righr for me soon. It'll be a combined maths degree with something else. I plan on having accomadation as well... The ptovlem id qhere i have no clue what to study. Nor qhat uni to go to, i naturally haven't applied. However my teacher says that even thoigj ive missed the deadline, i still can apply, is this true? Please excuse the grammar, my autocorrect isn't working on this site for somw reason.

    You can still apply but your application would not be given equal consideration. This means that those who did apply by the deadline would be given preference when it comes to filling up course places, so some courses may be full before they even glance at your application. That doesn't mean you wouldn't get in though. If you're still unsure of the degree you wish to pursue, you could always apply for next year instead.

    I'm from an EU country and my application was sent sometime around the 20th of January when I was applying. One of my friends sent his one in early April. We both got accepted into our first choices. Just make sure your personal statement is sharp, grammatically correct and engaging, that your recommendation is from someone who knows you decently well and that you keep in contact with the university.

    I even heard of a girl who send her application in mid June and got into her second choice. Don't worry, you're not a lost cause.

    You can still send an application, however unis are no longer obligated to consider you, so you should email/call potential unis to see if its worth the time. Alternatively, you could wait until next year to apply after you've had more time to think things through

    perhaps you could consider Maths with computer science or economics. As far as universities are concerned many will have filled their courses now so you will have less choice. you need to make some kind of decision soon on course and location or take a gap year and apply next year
