    I'm wondering why would the teachers work on Sunday. Just for looking at our results?
    Yep, they normally sort out results a few days before hand.
    It allows them to prepare confirmation packs for Confirmed freshers and also to sort out paperwork for the Summer pool.

    They also look at relaxing conditions of those who missed their offers, so they start working from now.
    Also, they know that from Thursday, they are likely to get bajillions of calls, so they probably want to get it over with before then :P

    Same here. I was thinking should I phone them and ask for something else see if they would say anything related.
    You KNOW they won't do that :P -hug- CALM DOWN

    Yep, quite a high offer :/
    I think it was due to my double maths.
    Yup, I read somewhere that university admission offices are open the sunday prior to results day.
    Gosh crazy offer for you :/ :eek:

    Most colleges only have to process about 150 offers and if it is done on a subject basis considerably less. They'll probably be finished by tea time!!

    And that just makes me more at them for not sharing their decisions if they have decided all our fates that quickly.

    I am an international applicant from hong kong
    I have confidence in getting S,1 or even S,S in my STEP, which will be released a few days later
    However, I probably lose my offer as I really don't think I can get 7 or above in all components of my IELTS

    Ha yeah me too but I can't for the life of me think of anything to ask them other than 'pleeeeaaase just tellll meee', then I'd thought about maybe having a breakdown on the phone, but some how I just don't think they'll go for it. In fact, having tried this already in January (to see if I'd got an offer), I pretty much know the won't go for it.
    But seriously though, what the hell are they doing that could possibly take 4 days? Theres about five people in each course, jeez.... get a move on!

    The amount of pessimism on this thread is painful to read! C'mon folks! A little positivity please! I'm sure you'll all meet your offers and be fiiiiine :awesome:

    Looking back at last year's thread there were so many people worried that they wouldn't meet their offer and, in the end, the majority seemed to actually exceed it. I've got every confidence in you all

    Just out of interest, I was just wondering if people can still log into their SAQ's? I know there was talk about it around offer time and about what it meant.
    I don't really believe there is any link but I tried to log in out of extreme boredom and it said my ucas id doesn't match their records. Is this the same for everyone? Hope it doesn't mean I'm rejected already :eek:

    If I'm not mistaken, the SAQ form thing is more applicable just around new year when you find out whether or not you have an offer -- those who were straight-off offered or rejected were usually unable to access their SAQ forms, and those who were pooled are still able to. [But there were exceptions to this.] I'd imagine that, by now, no-one is able to access their SAQ forms.

    I cant access it either- Scared the **** out of me . I think they must have updated it so that the next year applicants can start accessing it.

    Thanks, I did think there wouldn't be a need to keep it active for this long. Just a momentary paranoid panic :rolleyes:

    Haha that was my rational conclusion after a moment of panic I hope my instant 'They must have deleted me from the system already with my results being so bad' reaction was wrong!

    OH POOP.

    I seriously need to change my postal address and I can't because of course, Track is not updating records -___-
    Any suggestions?
    (postal is so slow in the country I live in. It will take me about 3 weeks to receive my post from the UK - I CAN'T WAIT 3 WEEKS TO FIND OUT WHO MY COLLEGE PARENTS ARE x___x)

    Should I just email the college and ask them to change my postal address on CamSIS/the cambridge system?

    They gave me my offer over the phone in January (well it was my sister who rang with appropriately trembling voice).
