Hello, I am currently on the last semester of my college course, Ive been given a conditional place at a university and I am going to apply for the undergraduate bursuary. It states that you can apply if "You have a confirmed place for a recognised first degree at a UK university or college of higher education. Those with a conditional acceptance may apply but the award depends on confirmation of acceptance." Now while I understand what this means, I am debating on whether to send my application with my cover letter attached with the conditional offer to university or wait until till I recieve my grades in aproximately August time and send with an official confirmation of a place. Its not that I dont have faith in whether I will achieve the sufficent grades, I am just wondering whether if I send the application for consideration early, will the selection process start earlier, hence giving me less time for prepation. I am one to over prepare and would like to give myself plenty of time to give it my best shot, however Im not a fan of waiting around if I have the oppotunity to make my presence known right now. Please can someone shed some light on this issue, more specifically if known, how long after sending my application off will any sort of selection/consideration process begin (If they give me a chance). Thank you.
