Hi everyone,

My school told us today that we should rush to get our personal statements in and send our UCAS application off otherwise the places will run out and we'll more likely be declined. This has worried me and I just wanted to ask if this is true or if anybody could give me better information on this topic. Thank you

They need you to be prompt so that THEY have time to write their references before the January deadline. If your whole class wait until the last minute then that makes things unmanageable for your school.

Universities DO NOT "run out" of space for applicants prior to the deadline. That's a ******** rumour spread by people who don't understand admissions processes.

It's not true. All applications submitted by January 15th are guaranteed equal consideration. There are some exceptions which have an earlier October deadline, but that's only for Oxbridge, medicine and vet med.
