Yes, but you will generally still need to complete a UCAS application so it makes sense to start sooner rather than later.

No, the 15th Jan deadline doesn't apply in this case.

That's the first time I've ever heard that it doesn't apply.

OP, to be safe I'd call up UCAS and check

Yes.

But they will generally need a completed UCAS application too, with a personal statement and a reference, etc.

In theory the application can be done on the day (but your referee is unlikely to be happy about that...). So that's why you should at least create an application in advance.

Also why leave everything until Results Day? You get much less choice during Clearing and in many cases no guarantee of accommodation either.

The 15th January is for "equal consideration". That doesn't apply to Clearing.
