    I doubt they decide on results day, when they have got hundreds of applications to get through, so when do they usually decide when to give a student a place?

    They normally get results a weekish earlier than results day.

    They have to let u on if u make the grade. If u don't then I guess it depends on how many spots they have left.

    They get results a few days before results day ( I don't have the date accessible), but the results are under a strict embargo, so they can pulse Track for Results day.

    Ucas send through A levels on the Friday night before results day. They'll spend the weekend sorting through who has met their offer and who has missed by more than they would be willing to accept. On Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday they'll work through applicants who have missed slightly and decide who they're able to take.
    All decisions sent to ucas by 6pm Wednesday will show on Track at 8am.

    Nothing is automated - every application is looked at by a human and then checked by another human before a decision is sent to ucas.
