    Well it does make sense... And maybe it should be sooner still because there are still a 6th on applicants who will be down as pending on results day.
    It also means you get some people who know a day or 2 in advanced due to getting welcome packs from their uni which isn't really fair but obviously everyone would love to be one of them.

    I'd probably only argue that people who don't apply to uni should get their grades earlier maybe but that's it.
    It makes sense I agree but its annoying!! However there is no better alternative

    At what time can we access track on results day? I've seen a few people saying 6am and a few saying 8am. Also, is anybody planning not to look at track and instead look at their results first? My school doesn't open until 9am on results day, but I feel like if I've been accepted, it might be more rewarding to find out from my results sheet

    Officially 8am. Unofficially 7:30am to avoid peak loading pressure at 8am.

    They won't be uploaded, only the maths ones as they maths one are uploaded onto an Edexcel maths network which has a different log in compared to the actual teacher login so one user has the password for the former and therefore can access the maths ones but not the others

    But you might have been accepted and not met the requirements so you'd be panicking for a while and then see you have actually been accepted and then if you find out first you have time to prepare and compose yourself.

    You can't register, a user on TSR was given the log in by his teacher and that's how he accessed them.

    It'll be what it'll be. No point worrying now. Might as well just accept it and not worry until the day.

    Just search the maths module you want in the search and click on the official thread with the date on it. The link is somewhere in the last two pages. Bare in mind that the stats and decision mark schemes haven't been released yet.

    The 90 UMS boundary will vary each year depending on how hard the paper was. It's usually the difference in marks between the A and B grade added to the boundary for the A grade, if that makes sense.
