# UCAS Number Query? Check Here First! watch

1. (Original post by kat2pult)
You're welcome the 09 number will be the same at all universities
Yea mine starts with 103
All my friends in my year have a number starting 103
They obv just run out of 09 and then go onto 10. Next will be 11, or so logic tells me.

Your logic is wrong

No, as in it for some people it begins with 09, and for some it begins with 10.
And in my centre we all have 103 at the beginning.

Therefore, I've drawn the conclusion that it can't just be coincidence that everyone in my year at my school has a UCAS number beginning with 103, and therefore UCAS don't randomly generate numbers to their applicants.

People earlier on in the thread, with a UCAS number beginning with 09, were saying that it is odd for someone to have a UCAS number beginning with 10. But 10 is a number one bigger than 09, therefore I assume that the next batch of numbers to be given out will begin with 11.

It may be an incorrect assumption, but it is logical.

You're mixing up personal ID (begins 10) with UCAS number (begins 09).

You might as well add something about my mobile number (begins 07) in there as well, as that would be just as logical.

Oh crepe, and I thought it was you guys being the stupid ones! Sorry aboot that.

Plus I should probably have read your post at the end of page one.

9. The search function comes in handy.

Everyone has a UCAS number, which starts 09. However this year UCAS decided to be awkward and are only giving candidates their personal ID, which starts 10 and has more digits. This is the one you use to log into Track.

Use your UCAS number if you have it, although this is unlikely. Use your Personal ID if not.
10. This has probably been posted before but I don't have time to look through all the posts, sorry!

I'm trying to complete a form and it asks for my 9 digit UCAS number. Problem is, the only sort of UCAS number I have is the one I use for Track, which is 10 digits long. How do I find my 9 digit number?
11. oh, i was just going to come on here and say it's your personal ID but yes, you're right, that is 10 digits.
um, well that's the only ucas number i've ever had.
some unis give you an id numbe when they write to you concerning your application, i know mine did, and they were all 9 digits. maybe it means that if your form is for a specific uni.

sorry i couldn't be more helpful
12. I know which one you mean but can't think what its called, it might be the one you used to sign into ucas right at the beginning when you were making your choices, have a look on any letters you might have received.
13. It's not my student number for my Uni coz they've already asked me for that and it's only 8 digits long anyway.

I've looked through all of my letters and stuff but I seriously can't find any number that's 9 digits long!
14. Anyone know?!

Anyone know?!
No idea, unfortunately. Best bet is probably calling UCAS on (0)871 468 0 468, open Monday to Friday, 08:30-18:00 (UK time).

Alternatively, contact the people you are filling out the form for and see if they made an error. They probably just want your UCAS Personal ID, however, I don't really know how this will benefit anyone...
16. I've got a UCAS letter amongst my pile of stuff with an application number (different to personal ID) on which is 9 digits so you might want to ask them about that perhaps

Thing is, I've had letters from UCAS but nothing that has a 'UCAS number' on it, just my personal ID number and Track login username. Is the UCAS number meant to start with 09? Coz I can't find anything at all on the letters or on Apply and Track
18. it might do yeh cos i applied last year and it started with 08
