i have been told that at 00:00am on the 16th you can log onto ucas and it tells you if you have been accpeted to uni or not? is this true
not sure about timings or anything, but last year lots of my mates checked UCAS before they went to get their results and found they had been accepted, so they knew a rough idea of what they had already
Again.... not sure about the time (can't find it on the UCAS site)...
But be aware that there will be a lot of people trying to do the same (probably more in the morning) and I was told that the site may become slow due to the number of people trying to log in and access the results.
However last years seemed to go smoothly (from what i've been told), so maybe they have sorted themselves of and such issues.
They usually come up at 7am I think. No point in trying any earlier to be honest.
Yeah, they come up at about 7am. But not everyone's works, since so many people are trying to do the same thing.
When my A-Level results came out I checked online in the morning and saw that I'd been accepted onto my first choice uni. When I went into Sixth Form later that day to collect my results I wasn't nervous at all, when everyone else was panicing and worried.
The UCAS server often goes down with so many people checking, so it's best to be patient (or perhaps use the Firefox 'Reload every...' plugin which will automatically refresh the page for you every minute or so).
didnt it crash last year because the demand for the service was too high...but yeah i remember it was at 00.00am when it goes live
oh! all this talk is making me sooo nervous...!
Does it only state whether your unis choices have accepted you or not, and not your actual grades? If that's the case, then I probably would be inclined to check it out beforehand.
I think it was about 8am when I checked last year and I was able to log in straight away the first time I tried. No crashing, no slowness, nothing, which was surprising after all the horror stories I'd read on here.
Wilko_777: Yes, it only tells you whether or not your firm and insurance have accepted you, not your grades. Unless you took some exams with Edexcel and your school/college has signed up to Results Plus, you can't find out your results online. You have to either go and get them in person, get someone else to or get them posted/phoned/texted/emailed.
..and on behalf of everyone who may be wondering, if you woke to find that UCAS had put unsuccessful next to your firm offer, should they still ring, beg and just 'pretend' they havent checked UCAS and were unaware. Or are they set in stone once they've declined you.
Obviously if it still says conditional you ring and beg, just wondering if you'd be wasting your time if they put you as unsuccessful.
Could anyone shed some light on this?
^^ Your first choice university may well take you on the course if there are extenuating circumstances, and if many students failed to meet their offer for this particular year's intake.
As to whether you've got a real chance of getting on the course, depends on which university you've applied to, for which course, and the number of free places on that course for this year.
i certaianly will be checking at 12 am and around 7 am if i dont get to check any earlier. THe wait is just killing me right now, and although i wasnt thinking about my results at all, everyone seems to be talking about them on here, which is driving me a bit bonkers!
hey, just wondering if it also works for international students. (those that give cie). my results coming out tomorrow. the 9th. would ucas update and let me know the decisions right there and then on the 9th or along with eveyrone else on the 16th?
