The Applications page is categorized into 4 delivery methods based on the applications added.

  1. UK DA applications

  2. DA

  3. Common App

  4. Other portals

Once the application is added to the applying list, it will be shown under the "In Progress" tab. You can click on the chevron on the right to view details like the study mode, likelihood, start date, round and so on. To remove an application click on the 3 dots and select "Delete Application".

If you haven't linked your common app yet, you can do it by clicking on "Link Common App" and it will redirect you to a page where you can request LORs too. Now, apart from requesting LORs, you can also request transcripts from your counselors.

If you are interested in sending out your applications through UCAS then you can click on "Submit on UCAS" and it will redirect you to the UCAS portal. Submit your application after logging into the portal with your credentials.

For universities that accept applications through other means, such as their own application portal or other national/centralized portals, students should select this option.


Submitted Applications
