    How efficient is Cambridge at confirming offers on Track on results day? Are they usually quite slow, or can we except to know from 8am?
    I suppose they should be quicker than other unis because of the colleges but who knows

    I thought that, but then they weren't the quickest at uploading offers to UCAS...

    If you have met the Offer conditions you should know at 8am. Judging by past years they are better at updating on Results Day than they are for Offer Day.

    If it hasn't been updated AND you know you have missed the offer then email your college with your UMS.

    I think they're under more pressure this time to let everyone know their decisions, whereas with the offers, they let people know by post/email before hand

    Thank you. So, if I check track at 8am and I haven't met my offer, will anything have changed? Or will, my offer just have remained as conditional?

    I *think* it just shows as Conditional. I never saw my son's Track so I can't be sure exactly what it says... (he missed one condition but was accepted later that day - 2pm by a telephone call from the AT).

    I *think* if someone has missed and been outright rejected (i.e. not summer pooled or anything) then it will be updated at 8am.

    Ah ok. I sort of would prefer a "you did not meet the conditions" message actually so I could be 100% certain.

    As I said to physicsmaths, if you've definitely been rejected you will know at 8am. It's the near misses that don't show a change.

    Oh right, could you tell me what message I will receive if I have been definitely rejected? Thanks.

    These are the UCAS track status messages on Results Day.

    Thanks. I have seen this, but couldn't see a status along the lines of "you have been rejected by X". There's only a status for if you are in clearing. I was wondering what my status would be on track if you haven't met your firm offer, but your insurance university has yet to either make your offer unconditional or send you to clearing.

    If not outright rejected at 8 does that mean summerpooled? Or could homerton think about it and accept me later on without being summerpooled?

    reason #4 why it's okay to miss my offer: no Home Bargains in Cambridge. I can't live without that store, and there's probably 50 in Manchester alone.

    Im pretty sure all colleges revisit all of ur application before summer pooling/rejection i.e. you could still here from Homerton the same day saying they'll have you anyway after you've sent in ur ums.

    If no decision has been made then the offers still show as "conditional" - some people claim your insurance choice disappears if you get your firm but when I applied two years ago both my choices still showed on Track with a successful/unconditional tag.

    For near misses the college may think about it, e.g. to await the UMS details.

    I had a dream one day where I got 4A*S in my A-Level and got the grades but when I checked Track it said they couldn't accept me until I had sent them proof that I had read two books that I had written on my PS, so I ended up having to make a moodboard of pictures showing I had read them (idk why that would be proof though). Needless to say, I freaked out when I woke up.
