Someone in the UCAS forum just made a good point. In previous years, Track wasn't available during this period and updates were made on the 14th, 15th etc, but nobody found out because it was unavailable. This year however, Track's working fine, and on the UCAS website it says that no updates are being made in these few days, and updates will start at mid-morning on the 16th. It also says that you can keep checking on the 17th, so it looks like a lot of people will be met with "conditional" if they check Track too soon.

I shall be checking track cos i'd love to go and collect my results knowing that i'd got into either my firm or insurance as i loved both uni's and the only difference between them being that notts was more willing to come down on the offer a bit. I wont be using an auto refresher tho cos then i wont pay any attention to it:rolleyes:

I'm definitely checking track, my college is miles away...and if i look on track and see unconditional it means i won't have to endure the 2.5 hr bus journey to get there and i can just wait for it to come in the post. Plus i'm workin so i won't be able to go to college to collect my results.

I rang UCAS a few weeks ago and the lady said it would probably update around 6-8am for most Universities. I don't know if this is still the case?

I can't decide whether to look on track or not! On the one hand I don't want to spoil (if that's the right word...) the surprise, but on the other hand I don't know if I'll be able to sleep not knowing!

Then again, if I have got into my firm I won't sleep for joy, so... :p:

16 August
Results day for rest of UK. Track service available.
From mid-morning, we start to update records for all applicants.
You can check at intervals to see if your application status has changed, but you cannot reply online until full service resumes on 18 August.
That's what it says on the Track website if you click the 'check availability' link after you've logged in.

No, I think they're making changes now behind-the-scenes, but the website won't show the new information until they flip a switch mid-morning.

Yep; UCAS is all frozen now, anyway, so if there even are any updates, they won't show.

That's good to know, and probably still the case unless there are some internal glitches. I'd imagine that after a few years of Track online, they'd have a pretty good guesstimate of what it'll be like!

God, if you're right though, that means we'll know in like 60 hours.

60 hours... wow!

And I agree with what people have mentioned above; I think UCAS will have sorted Track this year and there'll be no midnight releases, since they're continually updating it now and the system appears to have been 'frozen'. So, unless there's an 18-year-old insider at UCAS (!), I think 6-8am is a reasonable estimate for people to be able to see their confirmations!

oh no!! feel really disappointed now as I was getting really excited about knowing at midnight!! Its tuesday today so it's like tomorrotw, rather than the day after... as I would just stay up longer on the wednesday!! Wow, tomorrow does not feel that long.... although does it feel the same to everyone else.... that the last few weeks have gone really fast but these past few days have felt like years?!?!?!?
God I just want to know now!! lol
