    The article is here.

    There is some great advice from TSR members about how to handle the situation.
    We also got in touch with UCAS for the official advice.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    UCAS has a rule in place that universities can't see where else an applicant has applied until they pick their firm and insurance choices. This is to prevent biased decisions. It also means they're not allowed to ask you where else you've applied to.

    I didn't even know this was a thing, fortunately for me I only had one UCAS choice.

    I'm from the US and on the Common App (UCAS equivalent), schools are allowed to ask but your response isn't required. It's such an awkward question.
