    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I've just received an offer from a uni I really wasnt expecting to get into!
    Is it possible that UCAS would have made a mistake, so that it comes up as "Conditional" on track, but actually I dont have an offer at all, or they meant to put "Rejection"?? And if this is the case, what would happen?

    Very rarely. And usually the mistake would be with the grades, not the fact that you received an offer. So embrace your awesome-ness!! You've got an offer!!

    Very rarely - there have been some cases of the wrong message getting to the student, but these tend to be on behalf of the uni pressing the wrong button and not UCAS displaying it incorrectly. I know what you mean, though. When I got my LSE offer, I kept on thinking it was an error and they'd meant to make the offer to someone else. :lol:

    I think universities and UCAS can typemis stuff:

    Today my mate got an offer which said 240 points in 1 Full A-Level/GCE. He rang up and it was meant to say 240 points including 1 full A-level/GCE.

    Not right now - you have no reason beyond self-doubt to suppose they have made a wrong offer, and if you were to accept it they would have a very tough time turning you away.

    However, if you received a "Sorry we are rejecting you" letter, maybe phone them then?

    my friend got a mistake, it came through as an offer for course A instead of course B, which she'd applied for both at the same uni. It's really rare though so don't worry, be happy

    Im sure that your offer is legitimate and that you received it deservingly
    Ucas mistakes are very rare - its a system designed to make sure university applications and transactions run smoothly and efficiently - hence the chances of mistakes (Altho possible) are quite small
    congratulations - however if you still have doubts - feel free to ring the university to confirm your offer - im sure they wouldnt object in re-confirming this.

    Yes Ucas said I got into brighton. I phoned brighton up too I think and then waited a week during the week where everyone goes to other unis, and then i didnt receive any mail so I phoned up again and they said I didnt receive enough ucas points. Luckily I had another university down

    In the end, I changed my mind about course because I realised I want to be an optometrist ... and as LSE don't run an optometry course, I was released and used Clearing to get into ARU.
