    Ive heard that its possible to see whether you reached the grades in your offer from your university, without actually seeing the grades themselves, at 00.01am on Thursday 19th August.

    Does anyone know if this is true? or which how i can find out if its true?
    or even if which institutions are participating?

    p.s (have already emailed ucas - got automated response)

    It isn't true - the UCAS tracker isn't due to go live until 11AM on results day (and in all probability will go down at that time as it has in previous years).

    Clearing vacancies will be visable from midnight on the morning of the 19th and applicants already eligible for clearing will be able to start applying (although they'd be daft to do so if they hadn't already been in touch with the universities concerned). Applicants who *might* be eligible for clearing (ie people who've missed both firm and insurance offers) won't know about it until later on in the day.
    thanks (didn't see theres an official clearing thread - very useful!)

    That will be interesting given that the data transfer from unis to UCAS doesn't happen until around 2AM every morning....

    Doesn't look like it if you go onto there website - wasn't expecting them to have anyway though.

    Someone I know who works at a uni and has access to the nationwide U.C.A.S. computer tried to look up some (ahem!) info for me today but found that the system was down.

    This was not the website but a special system available to university staff only.

    Guess that they have taken it offline until after results day or all we would need is someone who works at a uni and we could all find out our grades early!
