    Basically my school told me Edexcel have some technical issues or something and that my Maths and Further Maths grade are not showing on my ums sheets. They literally say: 'X/No Result'. But I can work out my grades using my ums.

    My ucas track is not updating at all saying my firm uni hasn't received my grades yet. Should I be worried and give them a ring?

    You're not the only person to have problems with Edexcel Maths today.

    Your exams officer at college needs to contact Edexcel to sort things out. Simultaneously, you need to contact your uni to let them know what's going on and ask them to hold your place for you.

    Hopefully they will, but you need to keep them posted. Make sure that you make it abundantly clear to them that it's an admin screw up, not a remark.

    If you want a scary story, I didn't tell my uni about a priority remark until it had come back. As a result, they made me defer my entry.

    RING YOUR UNI!

    In fact, ring both your firm and your insurance, just in case the marks aren't what you need when they come back.
