    When I got a letter from Sussex to say they'd made me an offer, they made a point of saying 'specific details will be put onto UCAS track in the next few weeks.'

    So I wouldn't worry.

    Nothing to worry about, it's relatively common.

    Personally I received all my offers on Track first, after which the UCAS letters and individual university confirmation letters followed.

    Hello everyone, I got two offers for two courses yesterday in the mail- letters were dated 15 February, but checked this AM and UCAS Track still says "sent". I'm not worried about it, I'm just happy. Best of luck to you all'

    UCAS are useless.

    For each of my six offers, it took UCAS roughly 3 weeks (after the Uni'd told me) to inform me of the offer. Their letters go something like this ...

    "Dear Mr Hawkins,
    Here at UCAS, we have far too much paper. As such, we're sending you this letter to confirm your being offered a place at [university]. We know full well that the individual university will inform you, and that you will be informed via track, but we thought we'd send you a letter none-the-less. The forestry industry doesn't support itself you know.

    However, we at UCAS also have too much time. As such, we passed this letter around the office a few hundred times, and then it was sent through several filing cabinets, so that it would reach you three weeks after the universities had informed you of the offer.

    Remember, it really does cost £10 to send an electronic form to six email addresses.

    Yours lovingly,
    UCAS"

    My boyfriend got a offer letter direct from the University of Hertfordshire in late January- it still hasn't updated on Track, despite him phoning UCAS and Hertfordshire about 2 weeks ago. In that phone call, Hertfordshire told him that they hadn't sent the offer to UCAS accidentally-they said they'd sent it while he was on the phone, and it should be updated by UCAS by the end of the day. It wasn't- and as you probably know, UCAS are impossible to get hold of at the best of times, so he's left waiting it out.

    Herts is his last decision to be updated, and it's one of the unis he is seriously considering as Firm as well, but as he doesn't know the conditions of the offer and it hasn't updated, he can't confirm his choices!

    Stupid UCAS.

    I believe UCAS only updates once they receive the information from the unis and it is done directly, so that it isn't UCAS's fault, but that of the universities.

    Haha - Bristol updated my offer status through Track some 9 weeks after they emailed me to say I had a place - and some 4 months after I'd applied...

    So yeah, two weeks is nothing - as long as you've received an email or letter direct from the university, then you have a place.

    mine happened the opposite way- got on offer on track before i got a letter from the uni- i think the system is a bit crappy tho- too many holes and probs with it- causes loads of stress and makes you want to throw your computer at the wall and stamp on it in a temper!!!!!:eek:
