    Hello, I'm British but went to high school in America. Yesterday i received three of my final grades for three of my classes (should receive the other four in the coming days). The ones i received were history, psychology, social science, getting AAA. I'm awaiting grades for Maths, English lit, biology, econ. I think it shouldn't be a problem as the uni offer i accepted was on the condition i got BBB in three classes but didn't specify which ones (unlike some of the other offers i declined or my insurance which clearly stated BB and A in English)

    My question is how long does it generally take them to flip them around and update UCAS? as i had to send mine manually to my uni. I was hoping i might be able to apply for my dorms a tad before UK get results on the 16th.

    Cheers!

    It can vary and there's really no way of knowing. If it doesn't update tomorrow then it won't update until the 16th though, as Track is frozen for a few days up to A level results day.

    You can certainly email/phone and ask, tho it's likely they'll be busy processing your application along with the rest of ours... Call them up tomorrow anyway, can't hurt to try. But if you get no response/answer, you have to wait another week I'm afraid. But if you got AAA there's no reason they shouldn't take you tbh

    Okay wonderful thanks. I'm not to worried that they will not accept me because i have the grades they asked for. Was just a tad worried they would say ''wtf why did this kid send us these course grades'' as my offer is for English probably an irrational fear as they didn't specify i need x course. I wasn't going to send my report in until i got them all but thought i might have been able to get a better dorm if i get it in before the 16th. Oh well.
