do you think your results wont be out till the 24th because of the "delay"

i know someone that took it and got there results yesterday, and same is the case with me . it says "MOST" so you might get your results earlier

secondly, i was under the impression you should apply regardless on the first day (sept 15) without ck marks , because once your marks come in it will automatically update to the program so you should be good

correct me if im wrong

In my humble opinion two days are not a problem. If it was 15-17 sept we could have argued on that, but at the end of sept I think it does not make any difference.
