    Aye I was wonderin' that too.

    So the things that may show up are;
    Accepted - you're in
    UF - you're in
    CF - not yet decided, ring up
    Unsuccessful - rejected, can still try to ring though


    Yep?
    Just realised that PQ has already told me this via PM:

    If it's stayed unchanged that could be because
    a) you got the grade but they've not got round to you yet (possible if they've had problems with their connection to UCAS or the staff responsible are suddelny taken ill etc etc - the sort of stuff that can't be foreseen)
    b) you got the grades but for some reason there's been a problem getting them sent electronically to your unis - if this is the case (and it happens to about 5% of people) it's simply a case of contacting the uni concerned, telling them your full grades and faxing them a copy of your results slip.
    c) you've missed the grades but not by far enough that they want to reject you, it may be that you'll still be accepted or they may (if you contact them on results day) make you an amended offer for a similar but less competetive course or to a foundation year or similar if they offer one...if they make an amended offer then you're allowed to decline it and go to your insurance (or into clearing if your insurance doesn't accept you/you have no insurance). The reason you have to contact them on results day is to do with the whole confidentiality arguement between UCAS, unis and the JCQ (the exam board/school people)...once it gets to friday uni's will be allowed to contact people with amended offers but for thursday the contact has to be initiated by the applicant.

    if it says accepcted or whatever on ucas track does that mean i have met the grade requirements fully, or could it mean i have missed it by one grade or somin but they have still decided to accept me. Cos i would feel gutted if i find out in the morning that i have got atleast ABB(my uni offer) and go to school and find i got BBB :eek:

    You might have either got them fully or missed by a grade or something, but the uni are willing to accept you anyway

    I don't know whether to check it or not - if I do go on and it still says CF, then it'll stress me out soooo much - I won't know if it's because UCAS just haven't got round to it yet or because I've missed my grades :bawling:

    I remember I checked last year. It came up on UCAS Track around 10am, but I think this year they are putting it up earlier. I would advise not to check - it kinda spoils it when you go and get your results.

    I think it depends on each person. I'd rather know before I get my results

    Ive just woken up early to check UCAS track but firstly the page isnt available and secondly im having second thoughts as to whether to check it or not.... Ive decided not to bother cos Id rather know everything for certain when I get to school.
    It would be really annoying if I found out I didnt get in, cos then Id be worrying about how bad my grades actually were!!
