    About 5 days ago I received an offer through post from Cardiff University, it said information about the offer will be on UCAS and it offered me to go to an open day.

    I have looked on UCAS Track everyday now and there is nothing in the decision column or any news other than telling me my choices have been sent for consideration.

    How long will I have to wait until I find out the type of offer? might there be a problem? should I get in touch?

    Thanks in advance for any help!! xxxxxxxx

    Did you pay £19 to be mucked about?
    I didn't think so, ring them up demand and explanation, tell them to sort themselves out.
    And if they don't, you want a refund.

    What has UCAS got to do with anything in this context?

    UCAS can only process offers they have been informed about by the universities, and sometimes universties take a long time to send details of offers they've given to UCAS. I certainly waited a week or more after getting notification that I'd be getting an offer for it to come up on track.

    OP - you don't need to do anything at the moment. Obviously if it gets to a month or something ridiculous and there still isn't anything on track then you would contact CARDIFF (not UCAS) and ask them what is happening with your offer and why it isn't on track yet. However, I suspect it will just take some time to show

    My RHUL offer took just over a week to appear on track. I really wouldn't worry.

    Be patient. It does sometimes take them a while for offers through post/email to turn up on track.

    Well, does it have a date for returning it by or give any indication as to when they expect to receive it? If it's somewhere that you can see yourself attending then you should definitely go anyway, and even if not then it gives you something to compare against for other universities.

    Universities often have a lot of paperwork to do before they finally get around to telling UCAS the details of your requirements.

    It took me around a week to receive each of my offers from the date of receiving the 'we want to extend an offer to you' email.

    Thanks, it did eventually show up on track, but it turned out Kings had got really confused! they sent me an email saying "we are still considering your application" AFTER the offer one O.o but it's all sorted out now

    Really? It's the other way round for me, I got an offer from one of my choices on Track on 8th November and then an email from them telling me I was getting one on 18th November. The other two were an email and a letter a couple of days after getting the offer on Track.

    It's not UCAS at fault, it's the university. Seriously, you have until June to consider your choices... grow up.
