I'm an Indian student studying in the Cambridge International curriculum. I'm doing my AS and A levels in one academic session of 2019-2020. My subjects are English, Biology, Sociology, Business, and Geography. I'll be giving my AS levels in October-November 2019 and A levels in February-March 2020. And I'd be getting my AS level scores by January 10th, 2020, so should I wait till then to submit my UCAS application with my AS level results or not? My preferences are LSE, King's College London, Durham, UCL, and Bristol.
Pls help, I'm fairly new to the UK application system.
Thanks

as claireestelle has said you have until 15 January to submit your application. However you are going to need to discuss this with your referee as to how much time they will need to complete your reference. You can submit your claim before your AS results and your referee can submit your predicted grades. Some prefer to submit the application early and schools in the UK often have much earlier deadlines to allow them to complete the reference. It really doesnt matter when it is submitted as long as its before the deadline as all applications before that date have equal consideration. Personally I dont see the need to wait for AS results and submit your application when you are ready. You are going to need to spend time on your PS and once everything is ready you can submit the application.

So, adding my AS grades won’t add substance to my application? I was thinking to wait since I wanted to mention my academic performance also. I did my class 10 by an Indian National board CBSE and was thinking that it won’t add weight to the application. But if you suggest then applying early would then let me apply to oxford and try my chances.
Thanks
