    Well, I posted yesterday worried about a similar thing, but I'd just like to be sure. I found yesterday that I unfortunately did not get the grades to get into my first choice, however, on UCAS, I found out that they had already accepted me as an unconditional firm. But looking today, I've found that most people have already been contacted by the Uni about Accommodation and such, whereas I've only gotten the letter of confirmation in the post from UCAS, and the Confirmation on the Track Part of the Website. What worried me even more is that I just logged onto the University Website to track the accommodation process, and an automated message told me that they'll get in touch when they're certain my application has been accepted. Does this mean UCAS has made a mistake and that there's still a chance of the University revoking the offer? Track hasn't changed, and I received the letter in the post this morning saying I'd been accepted. But I'm still unsure.

    You're panicking over nothing. They are overloaded. You may be a day behind some of the other applicants if they had to spend longer deciding to take you, for example. You have two forms of confirmation. Chill.

    It's more that I've not heard anything from the Uni themselves, just UCAS.

    That may be all you get for a while anyway.

    They will have accepted people who got the grades on Sunday - then sorted out their packs ready to go

    They will then have spent Monday-Wednesday looking at all the people who missed and discussing them - you may not have been chosen until late Wednesday afternoon

    Hence a delay in your pack

    Hopefully, but UCAS is telling me my Offer was approved on the 11th. I'll give it a bit of time, certainly hope that there aren't any problems.
