    YES - ASAP

    If you apply late then you can end up without any funds for your first term. It's easy to swap the university/course later once you're sure.

    As PQ said, apply as soon as possible. It's recommend that you apply, even if you don't have a guaranteed place.

    If your situation changes and you no longer have a place, or are on a different course than the one you applied for with finance you can easily change it. But if you don't apply you aren't guaranteed any money when you start.

    Apply right now, put in your most likely University/Course and change if necessary.

    Yes, it doesn't matter if you haven't heard back, always apply early so you have more time if anything goes wrong or the process is difficult (it can be - and more than likely will be). If it turns out you don't get in then it is easy to cancel it - however, much harder to apply at the last minute if you do get it.
