    Reading emailed 300+ acceptances on Sunday morning. After we'd all been sent a very grumpy message from UCAS saying there were 3 breaches of the Scottish results.

    Then this one too...
    My Lord, that's bad.

    That's dedication! :thumbsup: I had no idea you still came on TSR.
    That's not dedication, that's the job I still come on occasionally, but nowhere near as much as I used to :moon:

    You should have gotten that Clearing number off UCAS. This sounds very odd.
    I won't name the Uni but informed my son by text 2pm today of a 6 digit Clearing number and said would call him tomorrow morning. Out of order if correct. Embargo?
    Report it to UCAS first thing tomorrow - they've screwed up

    thanks!

    another question, if I hold a conditional offer, will I know tomorrow if I had a place?

    I finished an access course and sent all my certificates to Uni last week.
    Hopefully, since Track has been frozen.

    Question: would any Uni other than Firm / Insurance even have visibility of a candidates UCAS Clesring number at this point? Does pre-reg for Clearing permit that?
    It's a possibility

    Universities can certainly see applicants in clearing on the university version of Track. That doesn't require (or provide) clearing numbers though

    Thanks..

    Whether correct or not it's certainly tipped my son's world upside down tonight.

    If true, then let's see if they offer him a place tomorrow. If they don't then UCAS and the institution in question will get it both barrels from me.

    Even if it's true their systems have failed to keep information secure. Please report them to UCAS to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    And fingers crossed for your son tomorrow.

    Hi! I'm holding a firm and insurance offer but applied to pre-clearing just in case. A certain uni emailed me my clearing number for that specific uni. Does that mean I'm already in clearing?

    Please report that uni to UCAS. They've broken the embargo. Unfortunately it does sound like you are and it's rubbish you found out this way.

    If it's a Clearing number for that specific university, that's something they've made up and can be safely ignored - it's a marketing technique (and a crap one at that - it's going to cause widespread confusion)

    If, however, they've sent you a Clearing number issued by UCAS, then they are going to have some explaining to do...

    Hello,
    I am confused.
    Can I call the uni at 8.00 am if I haven't got in to firm or insurance and have the clearing number.

    Or do I need to wait until 10 am when I also collect my results ?
    Please help

    You'll be able to check UCAS from ~8am, which will (usually) show whether or not you've got into your firm / insurance.

    However, there's no point in calling up universities and trying to get a place through Clearing until you have your actual results - we can't do anything if you don't know if you've got AAA or EEE, and we're just going to tell you to call back when you know.

    So if you get rejected from both firm and insurance is there any point ringing any of them for clearing or waste of time?

    I got ABB in psychology, bio and chem last year

    I retook this year because i wanted to get into London unis, I never applied last year because I really wasn't sure on what I wanted to do.
    So if I have retaken them and didn't improve and also therefore won't have met their entry requirements.

    How will clearing look at me if I didn't improve -_- and want to go to Queens as clearing offer AAB
    will it be different acceptance for me because i retook and did not improve ? theoretically

    also to study biomedical science

    As Claire says, use adjustment if you exceed your firm offer, because it means that just in case you don't get an offer through Clearing, you still have the firm to rely on.

    At my uni, we can take applications from people who hold offers elsewhere (some unis DON'T do this, however, so please check). If we make an offer though, we require you to inform your firm and UCAS though so that you can be released into Clearing.
    If the University wasn't willing to give me an offer because i still have my firm offer, and then i would have to get my clearing code, how long would that take? Because i'm worried that while i wait for my clearing code, the vacancies would be taken by other applicants.
    I'm really panicking!
