    I might wait until the UCAS offer letter comes through the post on the morning of August 18th, as the UCAS track site might be too busy for some people to get on and check. Alternatively, I could wake up at 6:30am, and be on the UCAS track website. When it's 7am, I just click the button to log in, and might be the first ones to check it.

    It will change to unconditional if you meet your grades. No one knows whether it's going to be disabled on results day yet or not though, though it most likely will be.

    Yes, UCAS track will tell you if you have been accepted or not. You will find out if you get accepted on UCAS track from 7am and onwards. In addition, you will get a letter from UCAS stating your acceptance. When you get accepted, it will say 'accepted'. If not, it will say 'unsuccessful'.

    True. At least we get a letter from UCAS stating if we are accepted to that particular uni though. Therefore, we will still know if we got accepted or not.

    I thought PQ said this year UCAS track will be available on the 18th from 7am and onwards. :confused:

    I imagine that the letter comes some days after though?

    Agreed. I'm very sure that you will not get the UCAS letter on the same day is results.

    PQ said there had been some discussion, not that anything's certain, and it probably won't happen. You won't get your letters through from unis until several days after results day either.

    Why do we get the UCAS letter a few days after the results?

    Ok then. I guess I could call UCAS about this issue and get an exact answer.

    Obviously, we won't know if we get accepted before results day. How come the letters from the uni's arrive a few days after results day? Why would UCAS let us check on mid day on the 18th?

    The unis are unlikely to send out the letters until results day itself, in case you get the letter before you've ot your results.

    Plus people try and get released from their unis, to go to insurances/clearing and some unis just haven't made up their minds yet, or you could convince them.

    It's probably because it's a huge thing to organise for both unis and UCAS, and there's a lot of admin stuff. Plus then there's always the possibility of people getting letters early etc.

    So to clarify:

    - UCAS letters wont come though until after 18th
    - UCAS Track may or may not be functioning on the 18th

    ?

    And, just one of my own concerns:

    If we do get the grade are we guaranteed the place? Or do we need to ring the uni up and check etc.?

    The letter may or may not arrive on teh 18th- mine was a day late last year.

    If you Do get the grades, all you have to do it reply to the UCAS letter ASAP. The Unis will know your grades.

    If you were really that concerned why didn't you just take subjects you could get As in? :rolleyes:
    I chose the subjects that I enjoy. Media people chose the subjects they enjoy. At my school, they are all a**holes. That's only my school though.
