I know that it is always mentioned that results are declared only at 8 am. But i know first hand that 2 years ago my brother checked his track between 7 and 8 am and his offer became unconditional.

So please let us know as soon as you find out tomrrow morning.

Or even f you get an email from the Uni.

Ahhh the excitement is killing

In 2004 Track went live at midnight on purpose. It was chaos - only the IT people were answering the phones at UCAS.
In 2005 Track went live at midnight for 5 minutes accidentally. It was chaos.
Between 2006 and 2011 Track went live at 6am - the publicity said "mid morning". Universities hated it because they didn't open their phonelines until 8am. UCAS didn't open their phonelines until 8am. It resulted in 2 hours of chaos every year.
Since 2012 Track has gone live every year around 7:30am - the publicity always says 8am.

Please PLEASE don't waste your sleep time hitting refresh on Track.

I really don't get what the point of staying up all night is. Let's say the worst happened, and you didn't get the results you hoped for - how exactly does it help you to be dealing with that - making calls to unis, speaking with your teachers, all that jazz - on zero sleep? That's pretty much a recipe for disaster. (And even if you did, by some improbable circumstance, get that news at midnight, or three, or four, or whatever time - which you won't - you wouldn't be able to do any of the calling or sorting out until the actual morning, leaving you back to dealing with it at a normal time, but sleep-deprived.)
