I want to apply to some ivy league schools for 2021 admission, most of which have a December 15 deadline. Im predicted A*A*A*. Ive done absolutely no preparation for this, and my school knows nothing about the process.

Could anyone advice me if its possible to apply before this deadline, and if so, what should I do?

US colleges (unis) look at your extracurriculars a lot more heavily than in the UK
What extracurriculars do you do?
Also if your applying you must take the SAT or ACT
(I'd recommend an SAT subject test or two on top as well)

2021 admission? So you're in year 13 now?

If that's the case, you won't need to take any standardised tests. All of the Ivies are on CommonApp. I don't know where you got December 15 from? I seem to remember the ivies having an early January deadline for regular decision, and October 31 deadline for early decision.

Well you need to look into the application US schools require a much longer one, they also take a more balanced wholistic approach but obviously academics are still important.

You will need to take ACT/SAT, early action or regular application window.

You will also need to apply to many more choices wheras in the UK you have 5 choices for your aspirational, average & safety the US has no such limits.

Id also say you should look more broadly then just the Ivys. For example they are all in 1 part of the US are not the strongest in all subjects and other unis have other options.
(Personally if I had to pick US unis id look at Berkeley, Stanford, Michigan .. but thats just where I thought looked great)

Feel free to dm me if you want - I'm an American student applying to three Ivies as well as a bunch of other US schools, and I know the Common App system very well.
