    You need it so that universities can make a CAS statement when you fulfil all requirements(achieve your offer). A CAS statement is used by the visa office to enable you obtain a visa to study in the UK. I think you don't need it right away. But of course you need to send your passport details whenever available and no later than when you need the CAS statement. If you can get your passport early, the better for you. The best thing is to check on UCAS's website and also on your uni website. If you are in school currently, they can also assist you with the problem and give you a solution. Good Luck!
