Just wondered if anyone knew if it is possible to apply to Oxbridge (before the 15th October deadline) THEN after that date, apply to 5 other Unis? :confused:

i don't think so because you have to submit it with your UCAS form, but it is a good advantage to apply early to other unis that don't have an early date, because you will get in there first!

It is actually. If you look on the UCAS site, there'll be more information

Yes, you apply to Oxbridge and leave spaces on your form, then add the other universities later.

unless ofcourse you are applying primarily to courses which also have the October 15th deadline like VetSci, Dentistry and Medicine. In that case you can apply to upto four universities (including Oxford or Cambridge if applicable) for those courses and then leave the other two options open for other choices. (wish i knew that before i applied.... :rolleyes: )

Possibly paranoid that other Unis will reject them for applying to oxbridge?

But all that will happen is the uni will get an 'update'. It contains the inital date of submission and the updated date. So it would be waaaayyy more suspicious if the form was submitted before the 15th Oct and then added to at a much later date.

Getting you form in ASAP would be the best bet - you just look like a keener then, I would avoid reushing to get it in just before the 15th Oct, as it will look like a mad rush for Oxbridge.
