    I told myself I wouldn't check my emails for Track updates religiously, but alas, I have failed. It's only been a week since I sent it off.
    I know what you mean. I've been checking my emails every ten minutes almost every day since 18 November, when I sent mine off. Still waiting for a reply from Bristol...

    It updates whenever uni admissions staff pass on the information so yes it can update at any time although I'd consider roughly when I'd expect staff to/not to work. They may work weekends particularly if they have a lot of applications to deal with and are behind their schedule.

    got 4 conditional offers for BSC psychology , Sussex, Royal Holloway, University of Birmingham and East Anglia.

    And still waiting for a conditional from Surrey since it will be my insurance, however I am surprised that it was so easy to get 4 conditional offers from AAB universities when I got ACDD at AS. And with the news reporting these 'decrease in places etc,etc I would expect to get no offers.

    I'm firming UEA and will probably insure Kent but I feel like I should go have a look at Lancaster just in case I like it better than I do Kent! :teehee:
    It feels weird not waiting anymore! I stopped caring as soon as I heard from UEA so I just withdrew from RHUL because I changed my mind about going there and they were taking too long to respond to me.
    I take it you're going to firm Bristol, but where do you think you'll insure? I sort of want to confirm my firm and insurance on Track now, I'm so impatient! I won't though. Don't want to insure Kent then see Lancaster and love it!

    Urgh. I had two letters in the post this morning - one from a university and one from UCAS. My mum handed me them and told me to open them now, in front of her and my dad. I said I would in a few days when my exams are over, because I wouln't want negative news before I finish my exams as I know it would demotivate me. She then decided to go crazy and said 'you'll struggle in university because noone likes you and you're always horrible', which is total rubbish because I merely stated I didn't want to open it now. I told her if it was anything major I'd know when I checked my emails, and she said 'oh but what if they didn't send it by email, only mail?' and then started harping on about how it's my parents who will be supporting me at university and that she'd been looking forward to seeing what they were all day, even though I told her they were most likely just welcome letters.

    I don't know, maybe she has a point. I've gone off checking my emails about Track now because I fear getting bad news, but am I really doing myself any favours?

    I get that you've got exams so you're probably wanting to keep away from any kind of news until after, so in that sense then yeah, I think you're doing yourself a favour. However, you are going to have to find out at some point; my logic is such that I check as soon as I get something because it'd bother me otherwise. Plus, I need to know.

    I've received four conditional offers for Law with French and I'm just waiting on Durham now... I have been for quite a while, actually. It's driving me crazy because I'm checking my emails every hour. No exaggeration. I can't cope with waiting; patience is NOT a virtue >.<
