    Currently going through a nightmare, I've run myself into the ground this week with ucas and college work so ended up at home I'll.

    I'm now getting emails and phone calls from my college saying I selected the wrong qualification in my ucas and "your going to miss the deadline"

    I submitted my ucas to my college back in December it was all okayed and sent of for personal statement. This was only done THIS WEEK. And they are only now finding this problem with my aplication and acting like its my fault despite getting numerous checks done before and after submitting.

    The aplication hasn't been sent to universities so all should be okay but I'm incredible angry with how they have handled my aplication, is their anything I can do other that tell them (I know I'll just be dismissed) or do I just have to accept my aplication will go through at the last Muinet and the college will do the same thing next year with every other student?

    As far as i m aware there isnt anything you can do, unfortunately you are at your schools mercy, i remember doing my first ucas application and i got missed and so they took six weeks and there was nothing i can do about it.

    SERIOUSLY? Like even in cases that crazy theirs no complaint system in place? That's just not good.

    (P.s. Currently not having my emails returned so that's great)

    Ucas can't offer any help, i m sure your school has a general compliant system but that probably wont solve the problem right now.
