    I had my first rejection today, nothing abnormal there, the only slightly abnormal thing is (and also the reasoning as to why I am not crying into my soup) that, well, I haven't applied there!

    I changed 3 of my options the day I received my confirmation letter, I've had an offer from one of them that I changed to, then today this rejection.

    Obviously will call UCAS ASAP but in the meantime, have they 'not applied' to another of my choices, leaving me in Reading to get the rejection I'm not fussed about! It's not on Track at all - all of my correct 6 are on there, so just a little :confused:

    Call UCAS. They might've messed things up, or the uni might've just got confused. It's possible you've actually currently applied to 7 unis!

    Same happened to me. I changed unis too and apparently, they never told one of them and they wrote to me, requesting proof of my writing skills so they could make me an offer lol I simply ignored it. As long as track is showing the right unis and you aren't worried one of those six haven't received your app, I wouldn't be concerned

    I had an Offer from Newcastle today - again I haven't applied there!!

    I'm not too worried, I've offers from places which I had swapped to; if I haven't had an offer then I've had an acknowledgement so all is good!

    Hehe, quite cool to have an offer from a uni you haven't applied to though.

    last year I ended up with 7 offers because I changed my course choices, 3 from Manchester and they said I could just pick from the 3 what I wanted
