    The open days aimed at your year of entry will be generally held during the end of Year 12, the summer holidays of that year, and the first two months of Year 13. This doesn't mean you can't go to a couple the year before though, just to get a general idea of the university.

    Normally you will start your UCAS application at the end of Year 12 and you send it off at the beginning of Year 13. Applications for Oxford and Cambridge, or medicine/dentistry/veterinary courses need to be in by 15th October, and then most other courses need applications for 15th January. These are the deadlines for equal consideration. If you send your application off later, the university will still get the application and could still consider you, but they are not obliged to consider your application on an equal basis to other applicants.
