You may have nearly a year until your uni application deadline for 2019, but if you're clever (and we’re sure you are), you'll want to be as on-the-ball as Cinderella’s godmother and get your application right at the front of the queue.
That means getting it submitted by around half term in the Autumn.
Still think you've got ages? Just think about all the lessons, summer exams, Saturday jobs, parties, holidays and procrastination that you've got to fit in. Blink and the year will be gone.
In all seriousness, by next academic year, you’ll want to know what and where you want to study (or if uni's even the right path for you), so you can focus on getting what you want.
The Summer is a bad time for deciding anything what with exams and everyone going away. So between now and April, you’ve got time to work out what you want – that’ll involve visiting some unis (maybe) and exploring which offers what.
Not even sure where to start on the uni hunt? Have a look at Which? Uni, they'll help you choose your new stomping ground.
Researching all these course options can be equally as confusing, especially if you have a lot of interests and you're still on the fence. If you're not sure whether you want to study Polish, French or French Polishing, then take a look at bestCourse4me.
It'll tell you what courses are needed for what careers. Or you could do it in reverse and see where your favourite subjects could lead you career-wise.
The earlier you do your research, the easier it'll be when it comes to crunch time.
Already know that uni's not for you? No problem-o. Have a look at what the Push website has to say about apprenticeships, gap years and the wonderful world of work to get a leg up on the competition.
Or, are you in the final, dreaded camp of 'no clue whatsoever'? Panic over, we've got you covered – head over to our aptly named 'No Idea' section for some divine inspiration.
Year 13 - Offers
The UCAS deadline has now passed. Hopefully you can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing yours was submitted ages ago. If that's the case, here are the four possible responses you could be receiving in the next few months:
For more information on everything offers-related, take a look at our guide, here.
If you missed the deadline for any reason and still want to apply, you can. However, it means your application will be marked as late, so universities don't have to look at it if they don’t want to or need to.
It's worth letting them know why it’s late in your personal statement if you have a valid reason.
Or, you could just wait till next year and get your application in early then.
