    Just wondering what A2 students are planning on doing on results day, are you going to check track in the morning to see if you've got into your firm University or wait until you get your actual results from school? I'm still undecided, kinda feel like checking track will ruin the opening the envelope moment haha!

    I think 95% check track at 7:01am or whichever hour it opens these days.

    I think it's much better to check track at home then you can be ready for what the envelope will tell you.

    My sixth form won't open until 10am (just like AS and both GCSE years, ugh), so I'll probably check track first

    Fair enough, I'll probably end up checking track like everyone else because I'm really impatient, I guess it gives you more time to grovel to universities if you haven't got in, but if you have it makes results a bit anticlimactic xD

    true, it can go both ways, opening the envelope will actually be horrific if I haven't got in.

    Last year I checked Track at 7.30 when it opened - it didn't dampen the excitement of going to College to see what my actual grades were. Also if the news on Track isn't what you hoped/expected it gives you time to think about clearing or whatever your next step may be.

    Track first - remember that getting your firm does not mean you met their offer! You could have dropped a grade or two and still got in.

    How much information do you get from track? Do you just get a notification saying which offers you've made or do you get your A-level overall grades or do you get your modules? Would exams not on UCAS be included?

    I ask because I will far exceed my A-level offers, but would be more interested in non-A-level exams or a module breakdown.

    Definitely track. My uni is far more important than the grade excitement

    Track will only tell you if you got in or not, it wont tell you your A levels grades , This is my second time applying
