Hello



Unorganised Sector
I believe I have been answering your thread of queries on this studying abroad theme itself. If you want to study in the UK, then UK universities have their major intake only in Autumn, that is in September/ October of each year. If you want to study only at top UK Universities, then you should choose to study either in September/ October 2015 intake or Sept/ Oct 2016 intake only. There are very few universities who accept students for a January intake but not all of them are good and top ranked. To my knowledge there are only two universities in the UK, who are top ranked and also has a January intake for certain MSc programs. They are the university of Nottingham and the University of Glasgow. But these universities offer a plenty of scholarships only for Autumn intake that is in Sept/ Oct. But they have no enormous scholarships to offer you in January intake.

I believe you want to study with scholarship support right? Simple you need to follow two rules with no compromise.
1. Choose to study only at top universities: I repeat top ranked universities have plenty of scholarship support for students compared to medium and low ranked.
2. Study only at Autumn intake that is Sept/ Oct of each year. Again, only this intake is considered as the major intake and therefore scholarship availability are also huge in this intake. If you choose to study in Jan intake then they may be very few scholarships available for you.

So what is your problem in applying for Sept/ Oct 2015 intake? To be honest, hardly a week is enough to prepare the required documents and submit your application for ten set of universities. In my own experience, I send in ten applications per day. For your level being the first time for applying to study abroad, I suppose you can do two university application per day and complete ten applications in five days?

The only two things you need to be prepared before you send in application.
1. Valid passport and passport number
2. Scanned copy of all certificates and mark sheets right from school to college.

Apart from this an IELTS score report is advisable, but you can also tell the university that you will take IELTS some time soon may be in Dec/ Jan 2015? In that case universities will be still happy to accept your applications and if they are satisfied they will say you are given a conditional offer. So once you submit your IELTS score later, your offer turns unconditional and then you are free to apply a visa. To apply for a study visa, you need an unconditional offer.

Regarding Australia and Singapore, very few universities accept a BSc degree qualification and the top ranked requires a four year bachelor degree which you dont have. And moreover you need to write GRE general for applying to Singapore. Check yourself if you are prepared to write GRE exam. The cost for writing GRE is 12500/- in India. In my opinion, UK is the ideal choice for you. All they require is an IELTS exam and nothing else. they also have plenty of scholarships on offer and with your high scores and a branded university name, you can surely win a study place with scholarship.

Finally Jan 2016 intake is totally not advisable if you want to study at top universities plus seek scholarships. So choose to study either in 2015/ 2016 September intake. Hope this helps.
