If it's ready why don't you apply? I don't see the point of waiting. Plus unis tend to give more offers early on.

If it’s ready then send it to your referee.

It doesn’t affect your chances of an offer when you apply if your application is submitted to ucas by the January deadline.

Universities don’t “give more offers early on”

Aren't they given on a rolling basis

Universities have fixed criteria set at the start of the cycle that applications are measured against. If an application meets those criteria they get an offer. Very few applications are rejected.

Courses that are over subscribed will put marginal applications on hold until after the January deadline to decide which applications will get an offer.

There’s NO advantage to applying early. Universities don’t “run out” of offers or make more offers to early applicants.

Of course

Look on Which? University for your courses - most will make offers to nearly every applicant (80%+).
