    Rang again and got through to Northumbria, they basically told me to wait for it to update as they have thousands of applicants to sort.

    Yeah I just rang back through to Reading who told me that they can't confirm anything and I may be waiting until 5:00pm...absolutely gutted because I can't even apply for clearing

    If you think you are likely to end up Clearing you can start ringing round - some unis may agree to talk to you. If you want to end up in Clearing anyway, you can ask Reading to reject you ASAP. Might not be any quicker, but it does remove some of the uncertainty, and you are more likely to be able to persuade unis to talk to you about Clearing places if you can say that you know you have been rejected but are waiting for Track to update.

    I've got my results and should be in my firm but track has not changed at all, tried ringing them but gave up after 2 an a half hours on hold.
    Don't worry - if you've met your offer it will update.

    Give it til tomorrow lunchtime before ringing again - you should get straight through then!

    For what it's worth - updates from now on will come through whenever unis send them through to UCAS....

    UCAS aren't sitting on any updates (although some unis might be struggling to send through their updates).

    It's definitely worth trying! I have managed to get through twice now...try the general admissions number 0118 378 8619

    It may be something simple that they can confirm over the phone with you - mine was because apparently they haven't recieved all my grades

    They wanted BBB, and I got BCC. So I know they're gonna reject me, just wish they'd hurry up, because I've already rung a few uni's up and they said they'd take me, just gotta wait for them to release me!
    How did you do?

    Hmm you never know they may actually accept you with that!!!

    They wanted ABB off me and I got ABCC so I dropped a grade...probably why they still haven't decided.

    I'm in the same boat, I've rung around a few places that said they'd accept me onto clearing!

    It's enough to make you weep; Edinburgh have made a decision but aren't permitted to tell me over the phone. Meanwhile UCAS has STILL NOT CHANGED. Does anyone have a hotline for them for technical support?

    I am living a nightmare. I took my A Levels as a private candidate. My firm university has received two of my grades but not the third one. They are waiting on this 3rd grade to make their decision. They say they haven't received it as it may not have been "cashed in",

    To make things worse, my exam centre has not received any of my results, so I still don't know what they are!!

    I have told my exam centre that they need to call the exam board to get my results.

    Is this cashing in thing a mistake on my exam centre's part. Please someone reassure me that this does not mean that my exam hasn't been graded?

    Cool, What course are you doing? The woman on the phone said that it's happening to a lot of students today, something about certain departments not being able to process the results in time because of the hack last night? Meh, I just feel sick where I'm so nervous! If you've met your criteria you should be fine
