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



    Track will update at around 07:30 on Thursday 18th August, no earlier than that.
    Ffs, LOL trust my school to be misinformed :huff:
    Ohh myy, well at least now I have few extra hours to stress about it :eek: (yaaay -.-)

    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
    How do u know they are in clearing for chemistry??

    Guys , I know it might be a silly question but if I didn't get e-mail or any information neither from Ucas nor from my firm university choice ,does it mean my grades are lower than my offer and I didn't get a place ? I'm asking because my friend got his update 4 days before results day that he got the place at LSE (this was last year) , so i wonder if this is the case now too ?

    I was on MEI and I agree - I was hoping for an A* originally, no hope of that now, I'm praying for an A...
    That MEI C4 paper wasn't even that difficult, but i flunked it so bad (both the actual paper and the comprehension)

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

    Universities aren't allowed to contact you until results day, doing so breaks the embargo so you shouldnt be expecting any emails.

    Why don't they upgrade their systems?
    They have but it's a sensible precaution to keep functionality minimised at peak load.

    There are very few updates that come through at midday so it isn't worth the risk for little benefit (and by switching off updates they get applicants to do what they need to do - ring their universities - instead of sitting on their computers hitting refresh and accidentally ddossing UCAS).

    I'm not sure, but I think that means that the university confirmed his offer on the 9th, although Track would not have updated to show this until the morning of results day.

    Yep thatd what happens, they confirm it very early or reject and it only shows it until results day. I had this last year. Date showed around a week before results day.

    Quick Question:

    If my course at my firm university is available through Clearing, and my absolute worst is two grades below the conditional offer, is there a high chance I've been successful?

    I know it won't be necessarily the case but surely the university would prefer to take someone who's firmed their offer, who's application they've already seen, and isn't that far below the offer (worst case scenario) ?

    Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone!
