No, that's something that I forgot to do though, so thanks for reminding me.

Good for you for applying early. Far too many people leave their form until the very last minute and then have to rush through it.
At least if you're doing it now you're more likely to be happy about your final decisions!

Is there anything different in the layout of the apply system than 2008's?

Silly question, first time applicants wouldn't know.

when it comes to the how are you applying section, whats the difference?

How are you applying?

Through my school/college
Through a careers organisation
Through another organisation
As an individual


as far as i know, you have to type your personal statement and everything out yourself anyway; so my main question is: what are the added bonuses of applying through the school?

If you're currently at a school or college they will expect you to apply through them. Either wait for further instructions or go and talk to your teacher, as you will need further details.

Careers organisation or other organisation are the same as above.

Applying as an individual is mainly for people who are not at school/college. But if you're taking a gap year or getting a reference from school/college they may still want you to apply through them.
If you're a mature student who has been working for several years, you'll be an individual.
International students where few students apply from that school will probably also need to apply as an individual.

Make the right choice as it is impossible to change later! If you pick the wrong one, you'll need to start again, and any data you've already filled in will be lost!

You would need to ask your school, or if you know anybody that applied last year the buzzword may be the same. You probably will have to wait, though.

From a quick look, it all seems pretty much the same as last year.

I applied this year and got 4 rejections, and am going to reapply for 2009, but what happens about my current user thing? Do I have to cancel it, or is it used for 2009 or what?

If your certain you dont want to go to the one university that accepted you and you dont want to go through clearing then withdraw this years application (only if your REALLY sure though)

You can't carry your data through this year so you will have to enter it all again sorry so just make a new account for this year

I've started to fill in the results section and it says it's optional to include module marks. Does this just mean the grade A, B etc or can you put actual raw module marks ie 105/105 and if so, where does that go?
