    That depends, if you wanna apply to Oxford, Cambridge or for medicine, then you should start thinking about it after you finish with your AS' since the deadline for this is quite early in the year (Oct. 15)
    However if you are applying for something else, then it's too early for you to worry about it just focus on doing your best at school now.
    in the meantime, you can start thinking about which career you wanna pursue.

    I think I want to go into a midwifery degree (that’s not classed as medicine is it?? I’m hopeless oops). I’m not really sure which university I would like to apply for because I don’t know where’s the best for midwifery, but I probably won’t apply for oxford or Cambridge.

    Nope, not medicine at all. I don't think you can do midwifery at oxford or cambridge. Your application deadline would be January 15th, so I'd start whenever you want-I'd get it out of the way though and not let it drag on as it becomes really annoying. If I were you I'd start writing it when you get back to school, although maybe gather ideas of what to write in it over the summer.

    I’m in year 12 and I’m going to be applying for midwifery! My tutors at college have told me to begin writing mine now as we have to have our first draft done for may where we will be given feedback we will then have to keep improving it. We have also got a deadline to apply for the 26th of October as they said apparently applying earlier could increase your chances, hope this helps !!!

    Ohh ok thank you! Been doing a lot of research into unis recently and I’m actually considering choosing another route, midwifery looks amazing but a lot of physics and emotional demands... might be going into psychology instead but haven’t decided yet.
