    I have applied to 5 schools with UCAS and I am still waiting for responses. However before I applied I emailed lots of schools about my qualifications as I don't have A-Levels. One school only got back to me after I had already applied through UCAS, only I didn't apply to them because they didn't get back to me. They've said they could consider an application from me, only problem is I didn't apply. IF I don't get into the schools I have applied for I was wondering can I apply directly to the one who got back to me late?

    yes, of course you can do so! if they are willing to accept you before, there is no doubt they won't now. i've applied to 3 on UCAS yet no luck on replies, so i've taken the initiative to apply directly to another university. they say direct applications are more favoured over.

    good luck!

    Direct applications are rare. However, if your initial five reject you (or you reject them) then you can use Extra to apply to this particular university.
