    Question: Do any of you know people/are themselves people who aren't checking track before they receive their results? I'm really interested as to what people's reasons are for it.

    ...Like I personally don't have the self-control to do that so I admire people who are waiting till after their results...track should update an hour before I can even go to my college and it would be internally nagging at me if I knew that I could find out if a uni has taken me and I was simply ignoring it
    I don't want to check - I'd rather get my results first.

    I'm surprised at people who can actually muster up the courage to check track before they get their grades - I'm very much an 'ignorance is bliss' kind of person... also, if I checked before I got my results and something undesirable appeared, I'd be panicking all the way to school lmao

    Same here. I try to distract myself else I go crazy! :afraid: I just hope the gbs are kind and merciful..else it's gonna be quite harsh! :sad:

    Well, unless things have gone seriously wrong we are reaching the point where grade boundries will now be almost set in stone and some one, somewhere out there knows our grades already. I'm ready for results now. It just can't come fast enough.

    I'm not checking it (I can get my results at 9am) but I'm logging my mum and boyfriend in to look. Personally, I just want to open paper results for the last time and I'd panic if it said I hadn't got in to my firm about how well I did in my exams. I'll have to leave about 8:15 or 8:30 to get to school for 9am anyway so I can keep busy getting ready and meeting up with people before I get the results.

    Can someone explain the UCAS track notification about it being updated on1- 8 ? Does this mean the Uni's may make decision during those period and once available we can see ????

    unis will not make any decisions which you can visibly view until the 18th if your a CIE or A2 candidate.

    they update it for maintenance, updating UCAS adjustment and clearing etc.

    I think my Sixth Form put results online at 7:30 so that settles it for me anyway. But even if it wasn't before track was updated I'd still wait, at least if I fail I could hold off the despair for a little while longer 😂

    I am so scared about A2 results since uni depends on it. I was thinking wat should I do if I fail can we do resits with the curriculum changing its confusing. Really hope everything works out for me and others here though have to be prepared for the worst as well. 😔
    You can retake old spec AS and A2 exams next summer and not all subjects are going to change this year as well so don't worry

    Yh it does seem a bit suscpuous as I dunno why someone would join a what's app group with all these random people unless they were to gain something from it so maybe the person who leaked the papers told the others that this was the plan and now the girl is acting as if she was none the wiser ; she should've been revising anyway instead of being on what's app on the day of her exam -_-
    It was not the plan

    I've become really confident lately that I will get into uni even know I know I could easily miss the grades like idk why I'm being so optimistic ; I have no idea of what I'm gonna do if I don't get in - like I've looked at some clearing places but nothing seems that good -_-

    That's the Scottish and Access course results coming through.

    A levels is after 2pm on the 12th -7:30 on the 18th. Track wont update during that period at all - it will be linked to a snapshot of UCAS systems as at 2pm on the 12th.

    Does everyone get an email from UCAS on results day saying your application has changed or not ?
