    I got an email from an admissions tutor basically saying that Newcastle University are "delighted to offer you a place" on the degree that I applied for; but it didn't mention if it was conditional or unconditional or anything like that. It invited me to a post-application open day and stuff too. I didn't even think admissions tutors sent a personal email if you got an offer (it wasn't an automated email or anything). If they've decided to give me an offer then why hasn't my UCAS track updated? I got the email yesterday so maybe I'm being a bit premature but I don't know if it'll update on UCAS track or not... Thanks for any advice (despite the question sounding a bit stupid). Thanks!

    If you want the details, I'd recommend phoning UCAS . I think there's alot of delays going on at the moment because of the large amount of applicants. I got an offer today on track, but I haven't even had an email yet from UCAS to say I'd gotten one, which was quite strange. Congrats

    It's so frustrating! I mean, I'm really happy I got an offer but I don't know the conditions or anything. :confused: The BA in music, what did you apply for?

    I received an offer yesterday and another one today (I realised through emails from the Uni like you). My offer from yesterday updated on Track after a few hours and my offer from today isn't on there yet. I didn't receive an email from UCAS saying "something on your application has changed" after my offer yesterday was put on Track... So I don't know what's happening. perhaps they're just behind with applications as today is the deadline after all. Congrats on the offer!

    Since today was the deadline, the system is under a lot of strain and things will be delayed, but it will come.
