I sent off my UCAS application last Thursday and on Friday received an e-mail conditional offer from Cardiff University, but this STILL hasn't been acknowledged on my UCAS Track page and it just says there have been no updates!

Is this common or should I contact UCAS?

Thanks.

I think maybe your Uni just hasn't updated your UCAS yet, I'd probably ask them if it doesn't update by Friday.

Do you mean my college? Or does the Uni have to update it?

I've spoken to my tutor and she's said it's normal but I'm just a bit concerned as it hasn't seemed to have happened to anybody else!

Thanks

That's nothing! I received an offer from the University of Aberdeen in August (before the UCAS cycle, complicated story) and they didn't put it on Track until November 26th...

Pretty sure it is the University who does their updates on UCAS but I guess could be wrong.

Surely they'd have done it since Friday though?

It might be a mistake, but it might just be that they're being slow. But discounting the weekend it hasn't been that long, really. Give them a week and then contact the uni if nothing has updated

I'd be absolutely gutted if it was a mistake haha it's my first choice and I was over the moon when I got the e-mail

True, I wasn't really considering that! Thank you

That's very strange! Are you sure you put your e-mail address in correctly? Did you have a confirmation e-mail from UCAS that your application was sent?

Yeah I did get a confirmation email from UCAS and I did get acknowledgement letters from some unis but nothing after they gave me offers. Like for Leeds for e.g. people have been invited to their offer holder open days and I haven't yet haha but maybe i'm just too impatient

Thank you!

I only received emails from 2 of the 5 uni's I applied to! I think some just do it only through UCAS!
