I wish to apply to start uni in 2020 and have just started an application. As I'm trans, when it asks for gender do I put my assigned sex at birth or what I identify with now, since the only options are male and female?

Which gender are you legally? I’d personally go for that to be on the safe side.

I don’t think it really matters which you put down most of the time. I believe they only ask gender to make demographic statistics of the UCAS cycle.

Although your specific unis may have scholarships aimed at a specific gender.

You can put the gender you identify as. I think the gender you put on UCAS is what the universities you apply to will mark you as so it makes sense to use the gender you want to be recognised as rather than having to change it with the university you go to when you start.
