This is the thread for all you people fretting about Track, which will not update before the morning: check out this page

Please also remember that
  • Using 'auto-refresh' tools may seem like a good idea, but all it does is mess up the system for everybody without getting you any closer to your goal.
  • If Track hasn't updated for you when you finally do get in, it is not going to until midday at the earliest, so there is no point in constantly refreshing the page. Just log out and go and do something else until you can get hold of your results and see what's what.


Track should become available from 8am. In past years people have usually been able to get on to Track from about 6.30am UK time, but certainly not before. Yes, there was a year when a few people got in around midnight, but that was a one-off and won't happen again. The best bet is to go to bed and try and get some sleep, as if your worst fears are realised you will need all your wits about you in the morning.

If you're killing time it is well worth reading the following so you're prepared for all of the possible outcomes:



We do understand how stressful this all is, so chat away in here if it makes you feel better

I've just dug out the stats from last year.

As Track went live:
345,000 applicants had had their firm place confirmed (55%)
23,000 had been rejected by their firm but had their insurance place confirmed (4%)
12,000 had changed course offers (2%)
148,000 were in clearing (3,000 of which had already had a clearing place confirmed) (24%)

and

99,000 applicants were still awaiting a decision (either from their firm or they'd been rejected by their firm but had no decision yet for their insurance)

So that's about 15% of applicants in "limbo" on results day who had to collect their results and contact their universities to find out a decision.

Also
what to do on results day


---------------
2014 stats

As track went live:
353,000 places with their firm (54%)
27,000 rejected by their firm but placed at their insurance (4%)
12,000 changed course offers (2%)
157,000 in clearing (with 3,000 already found a place) (24%)

and 104,000 in limbo (16%)

Thanks!

I don't know really. I'll certainly sleep the night before and check Track after 8am before going to school to collect results. Seems like the logical thing to do. And depending on how that goes, frantically ring up unis. :lol:

Very sensible - it's an emotional and stressful day for those who do end up going through clearing, so you will thank yourself if that does end up being you.

However, it's also somewhat of an anti climax for the lucky ones who do get in as they wake up, check track, see the unconditional.... then what to do for the couple of hours until they can actually go to school and pick up their results!

It's unlikely - they aren't supposed to send anything before 6am so most wont bother until their hotlines have staff.

So just to confirm beside whatever uni it says unconditional, my place is at that uni right? (I ask this because the UCAS Track on A level results day has a pic of the old UCAS format)

If your firm says unconditional then you're off to your firm

If your insurance says unconditional AND your firm says unsuccessful then you're off to your insurance.
This explains every other option:

That's what I'm thinking, but the earliness scares me! Northampton, which is my insurance. Asked me to do accommodation (which I've done) and start filling in a whole pile of forms!

They probably did that to speed up the admin on their side.

Remember to all get your sleep! If you do need to have a back up plan, tiredness doesn't help the emotions at all :no:

In 2011, I managed to log on to track at 6am. It may not be the case this year, but it's worth a try. I know many friends who tried logging on at 8am to find UCAS track had already crashed.

Good luck I know how horrible the wait is!

My Uni emailed me two days ago saying that I had been offered accommodation and was given a room number, and all the rent info. Is this a good sign? All my other mates that have had their accommodation accepted will have their rooms assigned after results.
