    I wish it did, but I'm fairly certain it doesn't.
    From the UCAS website -
    UCAS Track updates are suspended from 18:00 on 9 August

    Updates to UCAS Track are suspended from 18:00 on 9 August while we process examination results. Any updates to your application will be displayed from 08:00 on 15 August.

    Oh, I see what you mean;

    Limited Functionality.
    Updates to Track have been suspended between Friday 9 August and Wednesday 14 August while we process exam results. During this time you will only be able to make limited changes to your application. Any updates to your application will be displayed after this period.
    It's not very clearly worded. It means up to, and including the 14th August.

    I know this has probably been asked but I've been following this thread and I can't remember if anyone actually answered it but:

    On results day, if UCAS still says "conditional" next to your firm choice (for arguments sake, say you don't have an insurance cause it saves confusion) but yeah it says "conditional" next to your firm when it goes live at 8am...
    Does that mean that the uni hasn't decided yet and you need to ring them?
    Or is it just that UCAS hasn't updated? If so, when will it "re-updated" if that makes sense?
    (Original post by clydeshen411)
    no, it can take several daysfor the ucas to be updated

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    If it remains conditional and you have to assume it is undecided. If your results are at or above your offer you need to call and ask what the problem is. If your results are below it means they have not accepted you but trying to decide if they can still take you. So you call and tell them why you think they should take you.

    UCAS ask universities to be sure that any applicant portals don't go live before Track...so probably not unless Nottingham are being naughty.

    I'm not certain about Nottingham specifically, but I'd hesitantly guess 'yes'. I got an email from my insurance QUB telling me that I can "beat the rush" on results day by using their online portal.
    Decisions from QUB will be available from "7.00 am on Thursday 15th August", according to that email.

    I feel exactly the same! Results day this year is nothing compared to what we will have to go through next year, as all the former year 13s on this thread can relate to, I'm sure It is also going to be worse for a lot of schools because last year after the exam period, some had to go back for a month to do A2 work which took our minds off results day, but obviously next year, when the exam period is over, the holidays can begin. That's an extra month of nervousness and waiting for something that determines EVERYTHING. Never mind, I guess we'll just have to cross that bridge when we come to it ay!
    As a former year 13 , i actually dont feel nervous, i was exactly how you were now last year and in all fairness my results last year werent great but with onnly 3 days left I'm still not overly nervous about my results and not panicking about not getting in either, im sure on thursday morning i will but atm im just focused on other things

    Here's one I can't figure out...so my offer is AAA, if I wanted to do Adjustment, would getting AAAB (or AAAA), class as exceeding my offer, or would I need to get A*AA?
    Since your offer is based on 3 A2's i'd say A*AA

    Nottingham's my firm, and I'm pretty sure you can use them almost as early as Track! They're locked down until the big day, and I'm assuming they'll open admissions early.

    Precisely! I guess I'll kind of appreciate not having to go back in... I'll just have to find something to do. It'll be that weird mix of excitement and nervousness, but yeah, wait and see. Good luck! What subjects have you done?

    (Original post by Silcce)
    I really like your username xD. I think AS is less stressful because you have another year but when you go to A2, you have a goal or an aim and instinctively work harder if that helps? Last year I wasn't stressed over my results because I knew I could do them again/ have the opportunity to work harder, and I got crappy grades, but it didn't feel like the end of the world and I actually knew what I did wrong last year. This year, I was a fricken angel/saint, so I better get into my firm xD
    :teehee: Thank you! To be fair, I made this account years ago... probably the same amount of time since I last listened to them.
    I guess, I'm hoping that uni will push me through the year, because I really don't feel like I did enough work at AS. And we don't have any January exams which is basically the worst thing that can happen. :rolleyes: Good luck, what course + where have you firmed?
