    There are many ways:
    1/ Check track at 8 am.

    2/ Check your E-mail the uni might have contacted you to tell you your in.

    3/ The uni might have sent you something in the post.

    4/ Some exam boards post your results at midnight on their website the day before but you might need to log in

    5/ Your results letter that you picked up from school will show if you met you offer

    6/ If you missed you offer check track again you might have been let in anyway until track shows declined you can't enter clearing keep refreshing until you get either declined conformed or an offer of an alternative course

    UCAS embargo agreement with the exam boards forbids them from releasing results before 6am.

    They've learned from past experience not to open Track before their helplines are open.

    Track is supposed to be live at 8am

    The helpline opens at 7:30am

    UCAS usually make Track live slightly before 8am to avoid peak loading.

    This has been the timing for the last 4 years now. Prior to that Track went live at 6am.
