    Hi there.

    All this means is that your firm hasn't sent its decision to UCAS, but your insurance has.

    Because you have met and exceeded your offer, you definitely have a place at your firm - so don't worry. There has been some problems with UCAS updating which is why you are not seeing your place confirmed. Call up Leeds and ask them what's going on.

    Sounds like track is confused... Does your insurance now say firm or does your firm still say 'conditional'?

    oh good! i did call before but i think i messed it up because i got better grades i asked to change the english course as well for the one i originally wanted, the lady said i could change over the phone and work fast to change it but i still have no email or updates.

    Both your firm and insurance will eventually show as unconditional. Your firm is likely having issues updating but if you have met your offer they will update it and then your insurance will automatically be declined however they can both show as unconditional for a period of time.

    my insurance still says insurance but has unconditional under the decision colum. my firm says conditional under the decision colum but it hasn't updated since february. but i also asked leeds if i could adjust my course to a better one, so i'm worried they've got confused and think i've say no to the firm..

    thank you, i thought it meant that i had accepted the insurance. my firm still isn't unconditional but i will carry on checking ucas track. how long will this take? everyone else got theirs updated before they even got their results..

    If your firm still says conditional then it means they haven't decided / haven't contacted UCAS / UCAS has spazzed and not updated. The unconditional insurance bit just means that you've satisfied their offer.

    If you have met your offer then you should have nothing to worry about, but if you want peace of mind you can phone them. Just don't expect them to be happy to hear from you or quick to answer the phone :p:

    glad to hear, thank you for the advice. i won't ring up right away but if it hasn't updated soon then i guess i'll have to and apologise to them.

    If you have asked for a course change at Leeds it may take longer. Perhaps you could call and ask them when the decision regarding the course change will be made? Be quite certain that you want to make the course change though by reading up on the website and ensuring you understand what the alternative involves. Good luck and hope it all resolves soon.
