    It's bascially a DDoS attack, where hackers send out loads of waves of request to the ucas.com website, and because of the sheer load that the server has to deal with at once, it forces UCAS to shut down their website temporarily.
    It's basically what students do tomorrow morning by constantly refreshing....

    Hmm, they should really invest in thousands of servers! I doubt it's gonna be back online until midnight- here's hoping none of that happens again at 8:00 tomorrow!
    It's back online already I suppose they needed to since they have to put clearing places up

    And they need a higher level of vocabulary to do this.
    No they don't? Take an intelligent mathematician for example. Vocabulary isn't a measure of intelligence. It can be an indicator however

    My course for Nottingham's in Clearing! My offer was ABC/BBB, but they're taking BCC. I could still get in despite my horrible exams! :bee2: This was the only emoticon that sums up how I feel.
    And what course may that be?

    It can be anything between 6 hours and a fortnight....take names/job titles when you ring to get a quicker and better service!

    My predictions are gonna be blown out of the water as it looks like we'll reach 10k posts by midnight.
    Can always rely on a UCAS ****up to speed up the posts!

    And to be able to use those words in an intelligent way.
    Yes of course. Any idiot can recite a dense piece of text.

    If you can't communicate your subject, you aren't intelligent enough in my opinion. You may be clever, but not intelligent.
