Can a student apply in his/her second year
Actually I am a bit confused if second year is the best time to apply for it or not.(I have not worked on projects like you mentioned)
Yes I have coding experience and my very own small projects. So according to you should I apply or wait.
It will be great if you help me out : )

Yes! I've worked with people from all different sorts of backgrounds! Some of them even apply (and get selected) again afterwards. Depending on your experience you might consider a track that requires less of it. Rule of thumb is

Explorer (least exp) > Open Source > Externship (most exp)
