Escape Deadline Day stress

Unless you thrive off the thrill of leaving everything to last minute, you’ve probably submitted your UCAS application by now. But even when you know there’s nothing else you can do, deadline day can be pretty stressful.

So you might not have received all your offers within minutes of the deadline, but you can’t sit in refreshing UCAS Track for the next few months! To get deadline day and waiting for an offer off your mind, take a look at our Top 5 things to do to escape deadline day stress:


Unless you and your friends are equally as passionate about the same subject and city, it’s likely that come September you’ll be spending quite a lot of time apart. So when you’ve got the chance, make the most of your time together and talk about everything and anything not UCAS related!


Healthy body, healthy mind – or so they say anyway! Keeping yourself busy with regular exercise really is win-win. Stay trim, feel good, and deadline day won’t even cross your mind!


Chances are, you’ve probably got some form of work you could be getting on with. Although the whole palaver of personal statements and choosing your universities may have left you feeling pretty drained, keeping on top of your homework and revision will make the summer exams a whole lot easier!

Not sure where to start? We’ve also got some tips on how to get your study time in tip top condition.


A summer at home would be a huge anti-climax following the amount of time and effort you’ll put into revision and summer exams. It’s almost a rite of passage to head off to a festival, or to a party destination. So get a group of your closest friends together and have a big think about how you’re going to celebrate when the sun comes out!


Sometimes, to avoid stressing over something you just need to slob out in front of the TV, eat junk and have a sinful amount of naps!

And with deadline day only a couple of days away, you may be thinking “What now?“. Check out our next webinar on Friday 16th January from 4pm and get your questions answered! You can also get your queries in early by tweeting them with #NCLanswers.
