If you are considering applying to study in the UK then you should make an appointment with your guidance counsellor and start to research your courses and write your statement as soon as possible. We will post more information to help you over the next few days and the UCAS site is excellent.
The first deadline to focus on is the 15th October deadline for students considering applying for medicine, dentistry, veterinary science and/or Oxford or Cambridge.
It is important that you check whether you need to register for an admissions test.
Here is some information from the UCAS site –
Most admissions tests happen at the start of the academic cycle, so if you do need to take one you’ll need to register for it early – possibly before you’ve sent your application off. Plus many of the courses that use admissions tests are also the courses that have the 15 October application deadline – so it’s worth checking these details in advance.
Some of the more well-known admissions tests are listed below. Plus some course providers run their own admissions tests like these – be aware some course providers might add new tests (but if so they should be mentioned in the course descriptions).
