It's uni application time!

If you're thinking about applying to uni, one of the first big decisions is what your want to study and where you want to study it. How are you finding this decision?

If you need some help with researching, we have a handy GoogleSheets template you can download and make a copy of here to help.

From this Monday-Thursday, we also have experts on hand to help you with any uni application questions you have! Head on over here and ask yours now >>

Amazing, good luck with your application! Great decision to add choices in later, as it gives you a bit of leeway and some more time

If you’re sure about 2 or 3 then you can apply now to those and add the rest after Christmas

I've decided on 3 and plan to send my application off as soon as personal statement completed and add another two later.

It is delayed just now as I have been waiting for my teacher to give me feedback, but they havent looked at anyones yet and they have all now been passed to another teacher. I want their feedback and to polish it up before submitting to TSR PS review forum. Just wish they would hurry up!

I havent used it yet, if you look at this link, near the top of the page there is a link for submitted statements.

Be very careful to submit to the place where they are not displayed publicly on the forum or you need to rewrite the whole thing!!!!
