    So today I got an offer from my clearing choice. I applied for the course in track but it's still saying 'the university or college is still considering your application'. Is this meant to happen? I rang the university and they said it means I have a place but when I rang UCAS they said it check back in 24 hours to see if it's changed?

    It normally works like:

    University makes informal offers (over phone or email) asks applicant to add clearing choice on Track

    Applicant adds choice on Track.

    University formally accepts applicant and notifies ucas

    Choice becomes UF on Track and ucas generate AS12 acceptance letter.

    It can take a day or so for a university to formally accept a clearing application through ucas.

    Ring them again tomorrow to reiterate that you've added them as a choice and are waiting for them to accept you through ucas if Track doesn't update overnight.
