STEP 8: CHECK YOUR APPLICATION You will have pretty much filled in all of the parts of your application now, so well done. What you have to do next is simple but is a step that should not be skipped. Even if you have checked through all your sections as you completed them it is worth it to check again to make doubly sure that you have everything as it should be and nothing has changed since you originally filled it in. If anything is wrong then take this last chance to change it. If not then you should go through and make sure that each section has the complete symbol next to it in the little box, if it hasn’t then go and find out why so you can get it finished.  

If you and your advisor are happy then you can go on to the very last thing you need to do: pay. This option becomes available when all your sections have the complete status. You will need to sign a declaration as well as paying so make sure you read this through fully before you agree so you match all the conditions and know exactly what you are signing up for. When going to pay make sure that you have enough money in advance as you will need to have it ready on a card so you can fill in the details when they are asked for. Check the different types of card that you can use to pay as this can vary and you need to make sure you have a way of getting your money to UCAS. If you don’t have a suitable card then you can pay other ways but this is by far the quickest and easiest option. When you are satisfied everything is ready then go to the paying screen: this is secure so there is no need to worry about any scams. Do please make sure that it looks like the genuine UCAS site though just to ease your mind. You will then be told the exact amount that needs to be paid and have some boxes to fill in with your card details. If you are using somebody else’s card then please make sure that you have their permission as you don’t want to get into any trouble.  

Once you have your payment sent then you are done with the whole application process, or at least your part. You will still be able to log in to check whether or not your application has been sent yet which is good to do. If it has been a few days and it has still not gone then go and have a word with your advisor as they may not realise that you have done your part. If their part is finished too then they can get it sent.  

The deadline is around January 15th, although of course this could vary from year to year. Make sure that you know when your application has to be sent by as if you don’t have it ready by this date then you will have to either find a way of applying yourself which is a lot trickier or you will be forced to defer entry for a year. It is vital that you check that your courses do not have a different date which they need to receive applications by as places such as Oxford and Cambridge and Medical Courses will probably need to receive theirs earlier.
