Does anyone who's been on a gap year know if you get UCAS offers earlier as you already have your A Level results? Thanks!

You wont get an earlier decision just because you already have achieved grades - your application will still be scored and ranked against other applications and offers are made gradually working down that ranking.

However, you will have more chance of earlier decisions if you apply before the end of November.
There is a tidal wave of applications in Dec and Jan - and if you are stuck in this backlog it will take longer to process your application.
Applying earlier doesnt mean you are more likely to get an offer but you will probably get an earlier decision.

I'd recommend getting it in early, I submitted mine and have already received one offer of the four I applied to (awaiting decision on the rest at the moment)
