    It's really only Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, because we're already in Saturday and Thursday is the day itself in the morning

    If i missed my offer but my firm still has a conditional status, is it possible to get them to reject me?
    It's possible yes. Only if you've missed your offer though.

    Would anyone happen to know exactly what the email from UCAS on the morning of results day will look like (assuming track has updated)? Is it just be the usual 'something has changed in your application' or can you tell from the subject line whether it's good news?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    The first email from UCAS looks exactly the same as others you have got 'something had changed in your application'. When you log on to UCAS, if you got in it will be the first thing you see, as it says congratulations
    Then later you (may) get an email from the university.
    UCAS will also send a letter upon getting a place. For unsuccessful places they'll still send the email as above (they're generic). And I THINK they may send an email saying you're in clearing (if you haven't got a place). So I don't believe you will know from te first email

    I don't know where this information is coming from but it isn't correct.

    There are 2 emails going out from UCAS on results morning:
    1) To anyone who is in at their firm or insurance an email saying "congrats you are in at uni xxx for course yyyy"
    2) To anyone in clearing with the fact that they're in clearing and instructions on how clearing works.

    People with no change to their firm OR who are rejected by their firm and no change on their ins will not get an email.

    You can'( swap.

    If you get the grades for your firm your ins will assume you'll go there and will likely give your place to someone else.

    If you're accepted to your firm on results morning you would have to ask to be released (which puts you into clearing) and ask your insurance to accept you via clearing.

    Hard to believe you're still hammering these out, why don't you make an FAQ and refer people to it?

    I am too scared to go to school to collect my envelope. I would hate to find out in public that I have failed, and face the gloaters. But Thursday is also a chance to say 'see you later' to teachers and tutors and friends. Dilemma...

    I'd advise you not to go through clearing. You're paying 9 grand for a course you didn't intend to go on in the first place. Take a gap year, retake and reapply.

    Why not just collect it and open it when you get home?
    Alternatively, you could check UCAS before you go to school to see if you've met your offer and only open the results at school if you have.
