    Out of curiosity, why doesn't track update at midnight? Why do we have to wait until the morning? :unimpressed:
    Because the one year UCAS made it live at midnight on purpose (and the following year when it happened again for 5 minutes by accident) the only people working in UCAS offices were the IT bods. And the phones went WILD.

    The IT bods flick the switch to turn Track on. They won't do that if they have to answer the phones to dozens of sobbing sleep deprived applicants.

    (Also the exam board agreement says UCAS and universities can't reveal anything before 6am).

    Anyone firmed or (insured!) Bristol? Haven't seen too many as of yet!
    I have Bristol as my insurance (my firm is Imperial), for maths & computer science.

    See the first post on this thread.

    Track will update at 8am ish and then won't update again until midday ish to minimise pressure on the systems.
    Why don't they upgrade their systems?

    On Track it says that it will open up on Wednesday. What time will it do so (midnight Tue/Wed, midnight Wed/Thu or some random time)?

    Yeah, I accidentally added an hour.
    I can't help but feel the last few hours before track opens will feel like weeks

    Because schools aren't infallible? They clearly have been misinformed.

    Im also going for Warwick chemistry as my firm. My offer is AAB but last year the entry requirements were ABB so do u think they will let in people with ABB?
    I think it's possible since they're also in clearing right now for Chemistry, most probably due to their course being oversubscribed last year by tonnes so they upped the grades required to enter. Fingers crossed mate

    still not true. Unless there is a three minute period before Track freezes from midnight and UN-locks from its current locking which you might be able to exploit
