Most of my classmates applied in early November and quickly had their references done and the whole thing sent off. I took an extra week to apply because I randomly had a change of heart on what I wanted to study and so I had to rewrite my whole personal statement. It's been almost a month since then and my application still hasn't got a reference attached or been checked through or anything. Everyone else got offers extremely quickly and quite a few have gotten unconditional offers even though we do BTEC and those particular people were predicted average grades and their personal statements were poorly written and cringey from what I saw. I feel like I'm going to be at a disadvantage since my application probably won't get sent off until January and it looks like so many unconditionals are being handed out for no reason (although I'm applying for a completely different course so that doesn't directly affect me but still). Am I at a disadvantage?

Please do some research before creating a new thread. A multitude of duplicates are already made on this site. But in short, absolutely not.

I couldn't find anything, sorry. How come I'm not at a disadvantage if spaces are being taken as we speak?

Spaces aren’t being taken. Up until the 15th Uni’s will make an offer to everyone who meets their internally agreed criteria.

Uni’s make many more offers than they have seats available. Some offer holders will choose to go elsewhere and others wont meet their conditions.

Your chance of receiving an offer are the same whether you submit on the 14th of Jan or in September prior.
