    A few things that may work:

    1. UCAS give your results to your university choices on the 16th, try phoning up and see if you have a place. (or try to trick them into admitting it).

    2. Log onto your university's website and go to the academic dept you are applying for, look at the course register for this year, if you are on it, chances are you're in!

    ive tried no.2 but it seems UEA are far too cunning....

    Actually UCAS gives the results to universities tommorow (14th). There is no way you can get your results early. Universities won't tell your results before the 18th.

    number 2 could work, i had a look but the current student list are a restricted area.

    I'm guessing they are unlikley to update their lists before august 18th anyway, actually probably won't do it till they get their forms back.

    For the first option you could check UCAS track instead of calling them.

    Well I suppose the earliest general way to get it is log on to UCAS Track at 7am on 18th

    And, doesnt the admissions tutor know whos in by 14th (ie tomorrow)?

    Yes, they know our grades on the 14th. In addition, they will be sorting out acceptances/rejections. They will spend the next few days sorting out.

    How about this for a thought, UCAS make clearing available for the UK at 00:01 on thurs morning. Check then to see if your course has spaces for clearing. If it does it probably means they were undersubscribed and that you have a better chance of getting in even if you didnt make the grade.
    Alternatively you could have failed miserably and the reason they have space is because you flunked so bad and got rejected!
    Good luck!

    I hope the university clearing sites will be up at 0:01 on Thursday morning too. However, I don't think that would happen. They might put it up on Thursday instead.

    The courses that are in UCAS extra has a chance of being in the clearing scheme.

    I like the sound of the Clearing one... that could give you an indication. mind you it also could mean you just didn't meet your offer. It would be advisable to find out from the uni if they have spaces on the course before hand and if so, how many.
    But it would be a rough indication if you were Borderline only i suppose.

    What is UCAS extra? I was asked at UCL when I phoned if I had applied for extra. I just said I didn't know what it was, and they went on. The reason I called was that I had rejected them and wanted to make ammends and see if they'd still take me. Finally, they said.... "Phone us in August... "but really you haven't a chance in hell!

    Indeed. They might not tell you though. I called the university about this issue, but it was during the UCAS extra scheme, they didn't tell me, as they don't have the figures yet.

    UCAS extra is a scheme for students who used up all their six choices, and enables the student to apply to additional universities. To be eligible you have to: you have used all six of your choices; and you have had unsuccessful or withdrawal decisions for all your choices; or you have cancelled your outstanding choices and hold no offers; or you have received replies back from all six choices and have declined all offers made to you.

    Thanks Trev! Interesting! So how would it have helped me in that case? They said that they had overbooked or words to that effect.
