    I thought it was the 1st of September? In your answers could you provide a source. Thanks.

    No when can you submit the application (i.e. send it off to UCAS)? I know you can fill it in now, but you can't submit it yet.

    Ah right, sorry about that. I misunderstood.

    Although I can't provide you with a source, I'd assume that the earliest you can send your UCAS application would be early september. That's what it was last year, anyway.

    Lets say I dont get in anywhere this year, which looks like its the case, do I have to cancel my current application to reapply for next year? When does the current one 'run out'?

    20th September is the last day of clearing so maybe then? It would be best to cancel though.

    Sorry, I can't remember where, but I think I saw somewhere on the ucas site they mentioned mid-september and processing the forms once they've been paid. I'll see if I can find it.

    You are sending your application after mid-September (applications cannot be sent to us before mid-September).

    I've found it, on the UCAS apply 08 form, it says that applications can be submitted from mid-September. However, all other sources say 1st September 2007, and if that's what it was last year, why would they change it and give a vague 'mid-September'?

    I think this is all very confusing. I always thought it was 1st of September as well, but if they say they won't accept the payments before mid-september, then that means the apps can't be sent off before the payment has been made, so in other words, after mid-september. 0.o

    edit: most sources state 1st of september, so that's probably it then?

    I don't know. We should trust UCAS as knowing I suppose, but it doesn't explain why most sources seem to think it's the 1st of September, and was the 1st of September last year, when UCAS said that last years applications could also only be submitted from 'mid-September'.

    (Original post by UCAS)
    Applications for entry in 2007 may be submitted to UCAS from mid-September 2006.

    EDIT - It also says 1st September in the 2007 Times Good University Guide I have.

    There's a contradiction between the link Kirstinx provided (2006 dates):

    1st September - http://www.ucas.com/getting/deadlines/index.html

    and another section of the UCAS site where it says 2006 applications can be submitted from 'mid-September':

    Ah, OK, thanks Kirsty. I thought it was. I'll make sure my application is ready for the 1st, then.

    there was another page that said mid - but what i think it is is that by the time the applications from the 1st have been processed and sent to universities it will be mid september. Just don't panic!
