    During exam season I didn't really pay attention to anything barre my exams so I didn't realize that most uni's were starting to book for their open days and consequently I have missed the majority of summer open days.
    I have now put my name down for sept/oct open days but, not really knowing much about the UCAS system , I am worried that these will be too late. Can anybody help me out as to whether I will still have time to look at the uni's before I need to submit my UCAS form.

    The deadline for submitting your UCAS form is 15th January (unless you're applying to Oxbridge, or medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine/science, in which case the deadline is 15th October), so you'd still have a couple of months to fill it in if you go to September and October open days

    Oh phew, thanks very much! I'm thinking of law, bio sciences or anthropology and archaeology so that's fine.
