Hi all!

Got my first offer last night from Manchester but admittedly I am rather obsessive about checking Track and the email took 7 hours to come in after the offer had been made!

This morning I received another email to tell me to check track - this time, the situation is reversed and there's no changes in Track... I've checked everything thoroughly and can't find any changes at all, even miniscule changes that UCAS have suggested may be the culprit.

Usually I'd ask the UCAS team for advice over Twitter but of course, they're gone until Monday.

Do UCAS ever send these emails out by accident?
Or can Track sometimes be delayed in updating after an email has been received?

Of course, I'm aware that things could very well be different at the weekend!

Thanks

<michael winner> calm down dear, it's only UCAS ! </michael winner>


bloody #generationsnowflake ....

without turning it in to the UCAS version of the four yorkshire men sketch ;-)


.... 20 years ago UCAS (and NMAS and the various other schemes now rolled into UCAS) was paper forms ( which were restricted stationery) and ALL the interactions were conducted by snail mail or physically handing the form to people .

you would not know about an offer until the letter from UCAS and/or the HEI in question landed on your doormat

If you've had two emails then go onto Track and click on the view all updates button just in case you've missed something? I was confused for a minute yesterday since I got two emails but I had gotten two updates when I clicked through xD

Yeah I got two emails yesterday, but only one change in Track so it was probably just an accident

Don't worry.

The offer on Track will appear - sometimes the decisions data going from Unis to UCAS to you doesnt keep up wi the Unis auto-email system. Thats all. You have an offer - well done.

[PS. To those of you obsessively checking Track/emails every 5 minutes - Unis have until APRIL to make you an offer, and some applicants will wait that long for a decision. Also, remember that 'a decision' could be a rejection - so be careful what you wish for.]

Hi! I was confused as well, got two separate track emails (one of which was probably regarding my Manchester offer) after an offer from Manchester and was quite confused... maybe it's something to Manchester? Not too sure

i'm not that Old ! though not that young as not have cousins etc that did go to uni under that regime

but you'd have loads more choices if they did 4 +4 UCCA / PCAS , plus the courses that were outside those schemes (NMAS for nursing DipHE etc ) meaning that peopel could have applications to a dozen HEIs on the go ...
