    What course are you applying for?

    If it's not Medicine, Dentistry or Oxbridge then you have time (depending on your college's internal deadlines).

    Revise away. The equal consideration deadline isn't till 15 Jan. If, however, you're just plagued with doubt and find you aren't actually making any useful changes to the statement and you're happy, then you probably may as well apply, provided you've gotten good feedback from a teacher or something.

    Unless there's something desperately wrong with it then just leave it and send it. It's most likely already fine it's just that nerves are getting to you

    It's Oxbridge, so I really have like no time because my head of sixth form wants to check it

    Idk if my changes are making it better or not, they're just little ones like changing words...

    Oh she's already checked it a bunch of times, but she wants me to submit the whole thing so she can check all parts of the application.

    I've taken some of her feedback and ignored some of it. Now I'm probably just nitpicking but if I feel like I want to change a word I know it'll really bug me...

    this is literally ****ing me right now, not oxbridge but still early entry.
    I'm trying to promise myself that this is the last time i'm making changes to my statement and I'm pressing send at half 7 tomorrow morning. It'll go through a check at school and then be sent off fmel...
