Ready to apply
If your son wants to apply for university entrance in 2017 and you believe there is a good chance that this will be possible, you should apply now for 2017 entry.
If his circumstances change and he needs to defer because of compulsory military service, he can ask for a deferment to 2018 and I am sure universities will be sympathetic.
Apply online through UCAS at www.ucas.com.
Best of luck to him,
