    I haven't written my personal statement yet, have no references, haven't even made up my mind on where I want to go. I have to get medical information to send off with my application which will take at least another week. I'm already late at this point and I'm at a disadvantage (2.5 A levels instead of 3). I know my chances of getting a place anywhere semi decent are pretty much 0 now

    Check what Unis typically go into clearing and apply for them, they will most likely have available spaces even after the equal consideration deadline you missed.

    You can either make a late application to universities that are willing to consider late applications (some courses have a strict policy of not considering late applications) - you'll need to check with universities whether they do before applying - or you can wait and see what's available in Clearing.

    If you're really unsure about what you want to do, it might be best to take a year out and apply next year. It's important to get it right because you'd be wasting more than just your time if you applied for any old course that will have you.

    Lol, calm down. There's still a chance to find a university place through extra from february and then through clearing if that doesn't go well.

    Well, I'm sorry to say but you'll only be able to apply to universities that accept late submissions.

    Not quite. To apply through Extra, you already need to have used your 5 choices

    Pretty sure you can still apply, infact I'm certain. A girl in my school left it too late and applied later somehow and got in that year. Not sure if it was Extra or a different service, though

    You can apply as a late application, but that's not Extra

    You're a bit late dude, why not just take a gap year and apply next year? You could learn how to code during your gap year? c:

    You're applying for all the wrong reasons. Take a year out and decide what you really want to do and where you want to go. There's no rush!
