    So me and my friends wanna go on holiday the day after results day.

    after i call all the uni's and one of them says to me "yes we want you" and then i confirm on the ucas website at 5 o' clock, how quickly do they confirm that i'm on their course. Is it within an hour, on the same day or like a day later or a week later etc?

    so yeah, how fast do they 100% confirm that you're on the course after you've chosen your place on the UCAS website. and how do they confirm it, email, phone or waht?

    Appreciate any help

    there's a few things to clear up here

    a) this is posted in the medicine forum - are you expecting/hoping to apply for a place in clearing for medicine?
    b) UCAS are allowing applicants to add clearing choices from 3pm on results day this year
    c) When a university confirms your place it will show on Track (you'll have a new unconditional firm choice and will be able to download an AS12C letter confirming your university place)

    b) means that it's possible that some people will be confirmed with their clearing choice by the end of results day....but there's no guarantees. Every university will deal with clearing applicants differently so it's impossible to say whether it would be done in time.

    Is there a reason you can't wait a week to go on holiday?

    With a clearing choice once it is confirmed then you'll still need to notify student finance and arrange accommodation (and with clearing that often means arranging private accommodation so finding housemates and finding a house - lots of visits to the town/city you're moving to).

    Also it's worth remembering that 1/8 applicants don't have a decision on UCAS Track on results day - their firm/insurance universities will still be making decisions about their application and so if you're waiting for results and have a firm/insurance then you might be waiting 48-72 hours after results to even be PLACED into Clearing....never mind finding a place once you're in clearing)
