There have been updates released regarding which applicants are affected by the May reply deadline change. The new dates are highlighted in the table below.
These dates have been updated in Track, and applicants have been emailed, to let them know if their deadlines have changed.
This should hopefully give students and their chosen universities and colleges the extra time they need to fully consider any decisions and offers, and ensures fairness in admissions is maintained.
In response to the current situation which will cause so many issues with work experience and summer schools, Causeway have launched a page on their website dedicated to wider reading.
