    Just out of curiosity, do they come through 24/7 or between set times of the day? Whats the latest time in the day you've received an offer?

    No. Universities send the information to Ucas, which uploads it in batches. Offers can come at all sorts of times, particularly near deadlines when the little Ucas pixies are working on overtime to get things out.

    Haha I know ! It was strange, but it makes sense to be done in batches like that, I did think, do these people not have beds to be in ? Lol

    I'm pretty sure much of the process is automated. (No, actually, they really are pixies.)

    I got an offer at around 5.39pm - I believe.

    It also made me wonder since I'm always refreshing my emails and track.

    Good question - I hope we can get an answer for this.
