    Oh well, I have the same problem. I have this message since friday and still I can't log in to track -.-
    Should I wait for my welcome letter?

    Your application has been processed by UCAS. You will be sent a welcome letter and will then be able to log in to Track, which allows you to check the progress of your application. You will need your Personal ID number and the username and password you used when making your application.

    Lincoln were super speedy in my case, My app was processed by ucas on the 2nd, got an acknowledgement from Lincoln yesterday morning and then an offer at 5pm last night!

    *Sigh* also, could someone please give me the strength to leave my emails and track alone! Wahhh.

    cheers for that! I can also get into Nottingham's portal, despite no email. Should I take this as an acknowledgement too?

    Yep.

    It's pretty pointless though.

    The Nottingham applicant portal, I really don't understand the purpose of it!

    And thanks Out of the three I have? Nottingham's probably my favorite. I'm hoping I'll get an offer from Warwick and that'll probably be my firm, and I'm presuming a rejection from Bristol :p:

    Good luck with your application :yes:

    Well my two acknowledgements have been from my two favourite unis. But knowing my luck, I won't get them! I'll require an interview for Nottingham though. But for UWE they don't do one, so if they DO, and that's a big IF too, offer me a place, I'll just cancel my application elsewhere mostly and just see what happens with Nottingham as that's my firm favourite

    Hope you get Warwick!

    Yeah, it's true...
    I'm still very undecided. I really hope I get Nottingham. They sent an e-mail to my referee today asking what she thought would be my predicted grade (because she hadn't provided one when I applied) and she told them I'd probably have 16.5 or above (ideal would be 17/18 out of 20). I really hope they offer me a place, even if the predicted grade is slightly below what they want.

    I think the whole predicting grades thingy is rather vague anyways, at least for froeign applicants. It's really difficult to predict German Abitur grades, so my teacher basically just asked me "What do you wanna get?" and I told him and he said that was fine because he thinks I can do that.. :o: :rolleyes:
    I think Unis know about this, especially with foreign applicants (I'm not too sure about Sheffield though as their International offers seem to be very high - higher than the English ones) so they are just looking for a tendency. You that all the courses I got offers from ask for AAB from English applicants and gave me very different conditions though... :rolleyes: So I'd say if your grdes are similar to what they want you do stand a chance. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for your Nottingham reply!!!



    The longer I'm waiting the more I realize that Durham and Nottingham are actually my top choices.... (And of course those are the two I haven't heard from... ). I know I'm really not in the position complain because I already have three offers, and Sheffield was my favourite for a long time, I realize I really want these offers, at least Durham (I fell in love with that course!!!! :rolleyes: ), since Notts is very unlikely. Plus I got a letter form Notts today saying that they won't even be looking at applications for my course until the deadline... argh!

    Or just to put all of the about paragraph into one sentence: Waiting is driving me crazy...! :rolleyes: :eek3:

    When did it first start saying that?

    Mine changed to that on Friday, and I could log into track from yesterday afternoon.

    I haven't had my Weclome Pack yet.
    It started to say that last Thursday, when my school sent off my application.

    Does yours not say that anymore? Do they tell you when you can track? How did you get your personal ID? Sorry for all the questions.. just quite confusing this UCAS application!!

    Mine still says it, I haven't had any emails from them.

    But I used my personal ID that you can see when you log into "apply" and it says "your personal ID is.." on the first page. And then used my username and password that I used for apply.

    If that still doesn't work, your personal ID may have changed.

    Hey
    Is track more likely to update on a certain day - my friend last year said that london uni's are more likely to update their applications on a friday? :confused:


    Anybody got an ideas as to whether this is a coincidence, or whether there's a def. pattern?

    Cheers

    PS my uni choices are below :P:
