    "Sooner"?

    Applying early doesn't give you any advantage, but yes you might get a *decision* "soon", or not.... some decisions don't get sent until March (or later), even for "early" applicants.

    Most universities have a rolling decision process, some (eg Oxbridge) wait until all applications are received, and then consider the "gathered field". Those with rolling processes might make decisions (offer/reject) for some clear applicants early, but hold back on the more borderline decisions.

    However everyone applying before the relevant deadline (15 Jan in most cases) receives "equal consideration" no matter when they apply.

    Edit: which course at Warwick are you applying for?

    A boy in my class applied suuuuuper early for Computer Science and got an offer for King's College like 3 days ago, i'd say that the sooner you apply, the sooner you get an offer. That's why my school as an internal UCAS deadline for November.

    Most schools do that I think, Personal Statement must be finished by early ish October and must be sent off in the first week of November.
