    It's the UCAS number you applied with. It should be on the emails that most unis will send you when they acknowledge your application.

    It's your UCAS ID.

    Aberdeen's really sweet with these things, there'll be a long offer letter on the portal congratulating you and telling you what it's like there

    Hi

    Do you mean the UCAS personal ID number? If thats what your talking about it doesn't work, the numbers are too long.
    And I didn't receive a letter from them when I first applied.
    Any idea what to do?

    Thanks

    It should be your UCAS ID. Your UCAS ID contains 10 digits which is the maximum number of characters you can enter.

    Try removing the hyphens and spaces.

    I got an acknowledgement letter by post, Christmas card, New Year's wishes, offer letter, prospectus by post, and generally all these post- offer invitations and newsletter things. They're really cute that way

    Have you got an ID card already? If so it's the 8 numbers under your forname. I don't think you're talking about the same applicant portal as us though. We're talking about: www.abdn.ac.uk/applicportal

    The ID card is a card you recieve normally after you've got your offer though normally much much later. It lets you access the library and some of the buildings. I wouldn't have thought you had recieved one yet though.

    It is your student identity card, and you'll eventually be asked to upload a passport-sized photo for it but you don't collect it until registration which is in September. It's used to get into certain buildings, logging into the printers, taking out library books and must be taken into all exams. You should be using the Applicant Portal, which you log on with your UCAS details. There's also a Student Portal, and it sounds like you've been trying to access this but you can't until you start at the uni.

    Hello again

    I have another question, aberdeen gave me a conditional offer for a 15/20 in my schooling system ( French Baccalaureate). However, it is really hard to score exactly 15/20, my question is what if I get 14,75, will my offer be canceled? Do they automatically cancel my offer even if I scored a little lower?
    Sorry for all the question, really not familiar with the british system, I am from Belgium, go to French school and live in Kuwait

    See you

    It depends on how competitive the course is, normally though if you don't meet your conditions you're rejected sorry.
