UCAS deadline, 15 January 2015

UCAS deadline – things to remember

The deadline for UCAS applications for most courses was 6pm 15th January 2015. UniBox hopes all your students’ applications made their way successfully to UCAS!

If you or your students haven’t submitted your applications, don’t panic. The UCAS Twitter feed is loaded with advice and helpful links.

UCAS gives help on how to log in to the application website (and what to do if you can’t), adding information to the application, paying for it, and more.

It is important to remember:


The referee must complete the reference section before the application can be sent. UCAS says that when the deadline is missed, it’s often because of confusion over this part of the process.

Students, if you are applying independently, log in and check that there’s a tick next to the reference section. If not, you need to chase your referee to get it finished. If you are applying through a school or college, and your reference section isn’t marked as complete (or the UCAS website says, when you log in, that they are still waiting for your application), then you should contact your centre and check that everything is okay.

Personal statement

Don’t neglect this. Check it, then check it again. Then give it to someone else to check. Then check it one more time.
Students should make sure they have kept copies for themselves – they will need to re-read them to prepare for interviews, because interviewers often use personal statements to kick off their questions.


No payment, no application. Here’s what you need to know:
UCAS Advisers are available on the phone all day today. If you need help or advice, call 0371 468 0468.

Good luck!
