    Applying Early: the pros and cons?

    Some advisers will tell you that applying early always gives you an advantage. It doesn’t, necessarily. There are risks attached to rushing your choices. If you are sure then there's no reason not to apply early, but if you are in doubt then it is better to take your time.

    Applying early does not necessarily mean that you'll get all your decisions in quickly. Every year there are cases of applicants who sent their application in September not hearing back until April, or later. This is particularly true of competitive courses such as History, English, Law, Economics. This can happen even with less competitive courses and universities - some unis have a policy not to look at anything until all applications are in. Others will do a preliminary screening which will weed out the obvious no-hopers and keep all the other applicants waiting for months. In short, there's no knowing when you will hear back from a university, so don't rush your application.

    What does 'equal consideration really mean? Surely if I apply later all the offers will have been made and I'll miss out?

    Another issue people get really bothered about is 'equal consideration', and how this can possibly work if offers are given out earlier than the January deadline. Some people say that admissions tutors told them to apply early or miss out. This is nonsense. The number of offers a university makes for a specific course is not the same as the number of places they actually have. Unis know, through long experience, what proportion of the offers they make will convert into 'bums on seats' in September/October. So, even Oxford and Cambridge make more offers than they have places (Maths at Cambridge is a particularly good example, as quite a number of their offer holders fall foul of the STEP requirements and don't actually get their place in the end). They probably reckon that their conversion rate from offers to enrolments is 97% or higher - but still not 100% - and it will vary from course to course. Other unis, where a fair proportion of offers that are made don't get accepted in the first place, whether as a firm or insurance choice, will need to make far more offers to make sure that they fill the course. Let's say uni A is recruiting for course X. They know from experience what grades are needed to do well on the course, and may have a particular view about what they are looking for in the personal statement and reference. They also know that they have needed to make at least 4 offers for every student who actually arrives on campus. So, if they receive applications in October that tick all their boxes, they aren't going to hang around until January before making offers. If an application is obviously above their particular 'line' an offer will be made whether the application was received in October or at 17.59 on 15 January.

    It is noticeable that the unis that have 'form' for keeping people hanging on for news for several months are those where a large volume of high-quality applications will have been received, and in that case all of them will be held over until after the equal consideration deadline - this approach is known as the 'gathered field'. At that point, every application will go through some kind of scoring process in order to rank them as objectively as possible.
