Are you planning to go to university this autumn? Today, 15th January is the UCAS deadline for most undergraduate courses for academic year 2018-2019. However, it is worth noting that the deadline for applications for Oxford and Cambridge, as well as Medicine and Veterinary Science courses were on 15th October 2017.
Double-check your applications before submitting to UCAS
Over 37,000 courses from different universities are posted on the UCAS website. Applicants can choose up to five choices on their application. Once your application is sent by the deadline, there is a guarantee that it will be considered by the universities and colleges you are applying for. However, since there are literally hundreds of thousands of applications per year, you have to make sure admissions tutors notice yours.
It all starts with your Personal Statement. By this time, you must already be polishing this very important document, making sure it is free from spelling and grammar mistakes. Since the eyes have a tendency to miss out mistakes after reading the same thing over and over, ask a family member or friend to proofread for you. Perhaps they can even offer some helpful advice to improve it.
Another important thing to do is check if your reference has been submitted on your behalf. Tutors typically complete this and your school sends off the application to UCAS. Since tutors and schools have a lot of things to do and think about, contact them about your reference to make sure it has not been overlooked. You can check the status of your reference under ‘Apply.’
Are you still having second thoughts if you will submit your applications? It is natural to feel anxious and while you there are other deadline dates, remember that submitting early or on this first deadline gives you a higher chance to find a place at the university of your choice and take up a course that you really like.
