    Hello!
    I would like to apply to courses of mathematics or natural sciences, and I would like to ask you guys if the top courses are full up, and how hard it is to get into these courses/get pass selection. By top courses I mean top 5 or so.
    Thank you!

    top 5 unis are very unlikely to be in clearing....

    check the clearing lists now to see which courses are available but bare in mind that these will change before results day.

    places like oxbridge, durham , ucl ect aren't gonna have places available so maybe consider other less ranked but still great unis

    UCAS search tool is here
    http://search.ucas.com

    mathematics places going are currently


    Kings college
    southampton
    leeds
    exeter
    york
    liverpool
    sheffield
    kent
    keele
    lancaster

    ect

    Have you applied for 2016 entry?
    Are you considering 2017 entry?
    What do you mean by 'full up'?
    Do you mean are they in clearing?
    By top courses do you mean top universities?
    What do you mean by how hard is it to get into these courses? (Are you referring to entry requirements?)

    Yea, I wasn't precise enough. Yes, I am looking to start in 2017, and by full up courses I mean courses that have so many applicants, that they are near impossible to get into. And mostly yes, the top courses are in top universities.
    And as I am from the continent, I don't really know how application works here (back home we have a point system, and whoever scores more out of 500 points is accepted into the course.)

    For 2017 entry, if you are likely to achieve the entry requirements for a specific course at a specific university you are likely to get an offer. The only real exceptions are Oxbridge, and to a lesser extent Imperial, where you have additional steps to take (ie admissions tests and interviews).
