    I went to a UCAS conference and now they have my details. I keep getting sent leaflets through the post and emails about universities and 'how to apply' but my UCAS was sent off three weeks ago? Is there anything I need to tick/untick or something so they stop spamming me?

    Did you get your barcode scanned by loads of unis there? If so, that's how they've got your details.

    Click unsubscribe on any emails (this will often stop postal comms too, if they work on a CRM system for both) and individually contact any universities that continue to send post after that point.

    It will all die down regardless, as they know when you're due to reply and will stop wasting their efforts after that point.

    We got emails from Aberdeen for 8 years after son number 1 had applied elsewhere... I suspect someone just didn't get round to doing any electronic housekeeping. We didn't unsubscribe just to see how long it went on for, out of interest.

    Oh dear... what I said is the theory of the matter anyway! They will normally ask you what year you plan to apply in...

    As he's pushing 30, it was all in the infancy of electronic marketing. I suspect they have got their act together rather better these days...
