    Didn't make the grade for my firm or insurance but have had 3 offers through clearing (Brunell, Essexand Hull) How do I accept these offers though? I'm probably going to go for Essex but is it a case of ringing them back or do I wait for track to update and take it from there?
    You can enter a Clearing choice only if both your firm and insurance have updated to unsuccessful. If that hasn't happened yet, you will have to wait until Track does update. Ring your unis in the morning if nothing happens this evening.

    So my firm (Sussex) are still yet to reply to my application as they do not have my results information, I've sent them an email as requested with scans of my results yet still no reply...frustrating as I already know I'm going to get declined anyway.

    The problem is I have a place with my insurance, yet obviously can't move things on until Sussex respond. Is my place at risk if this doesn't happen soon? (I also wanted to ask about doing a different course)
    Sorry to quote myself, but anyone?

    Does anybody know until what time track can be updated? This waiting game is really frustrating.

    At about 11AM i told my Uni to release me after ringing over 4 times. Finally got throught to someone and they said they will do. checked Track after a couple of hours and they cancelled my choices however they added a new choice for my firm. WTF. I then rang them back and told them to release me again so they told me they they will do at 5PM when clearing will start. Still waiting. I already got an offer from 2 different places but id rather do is asap so i can get the place before they get filled or they give my place away. Have to wait god knows how long now.

    Many people are - you are not the only one.

    Apologies for missing your query. Your place at your insurance is guaranteed if showing as unconditional on Track, assuming Sussex don't take you after all. They may do - we've seen plenty of that this year.

    From now on, it can be updated at any time.

    I thought universities got our results early? so why do we have to wait when they had a few days to make their decisions?

    They do, but when people have missed their offers unis have judgements to make about how many (if any) of those can be offered places. They need to allow for people who might be knocked back from their firm to their insurance (as a uni is obliged to take those people) and it's not always easy to balance the numbers correctly.

    Where somebody has met their offer but confirmation is being delayed this can happen for a number of reasons, including the fact that the uni may not have received all the required information. This happens more often than you might suppose.

    That is a fair point. Its annoying that they are taking so long to reject me though. I guess they are extremely busy.

    They were dealing with people who had missed their offers and needed to discuss their options, and/or people who wished to apply for Clearing places, and/or people who had met their offers but the information hadn't gone through properly.

    Releasing people who have decided at this late stage that they don't want their place takes a much lower priority. We warn people about this all over the forum for weeks if not months before Results Day.

    I appreciate it's all very stressful, but waiting another couple of hours or even until tomorrow will not be a problem.

    Hello, clearing advisor - my friend has met her conditions but her UCAS hasn't updated! Can you tell us reasons for this and when it will update? Please help!
    Sincerely, stressed and worried friend!
