You still can.

I went through the excel sheet and deleted all the ones that have no interest or relevance to me. And basically refined it from there.

Tomorrow I'll click into what is relevant and that'll be that.

Are the applications based on the applicant's merit or is it just first come first served?

Where did you see the site was going live today? Search function not pulling up anything for me.

As previously said, it's a nuisance that they removed the course information as it used to be available all year, regardless of whether applications were open or not.

There will be increased interest this year so its very disappointing. Best of luck to all applying.

A few of my mates got them in recent years and only had to pay 10% but I can see that changing.

I only see that applications are open on the 25th, nothing about time or updating the course information.

Yep, seems to be. Managed to get registered but looks like its getting hammered.

Amazing how this always seems to catch sites out, no prep for the inevitable surge in demand when it opens initially.

No courses showing yet anyway, managed to get registered. Site taking a hammering I'd say.

this type of courses are NOT first come first served ; it's based on merits!

And the schools won't close the application process, even if they have 10 times more applications than places : they have a way of filtering down the applications and pick the ones who really want and can learn new skills...

@offtopic : few people ( even on this forum ) thought that is a penneys opens at 10 , start Q-ing from 3 am type of thing
