Hi

Ive applied to six different universities and heard from four. The other two i havent heard anything from. I keep thinking that i have been unsuccesfull but if that is the case, surely they would write to me anyway letting me know....wouldnt they? x

The unis themselves might not write to you, but ucas certainly would! They have quite a while to make decisions yet anyway!

It'd probably show up on Track first anyway.

You will defo get a letter from UCAS confirming you have been rejected, but the universities may not do directly. This is because it saves them time and money on stamps, not having to reply to everyone they reject. On the other hand, some universities do (if they're nice). Anyhow I wouldn't worry too much about 'bad news' yet as there's plenty of time, and depending on what universities you have applied to will depend upon how long you got to wait for a response.

No news is good news! Anyway, I think alot of uni's are quite quick with rejections then take their time over the rest. Good luck!

There was a fault on my UCAS form and I got rejected from a uni, I emailed them asking why etc, they gave a reason, then I emailed back saying there was a fault (they thought I was doing an AS but I’m doing A2), then the admissions tutor gave me an offer (via email) & said I would receive confirmation before christmas, it says unsuccessful on track & I got the unsuccessful letter (this was only last week). So will/can the offer on track be changed & will I receive a successful letter from UCAS?
