Im sure you can call UCAS to edit it.

Even then, I doubt it will be very important since universities use your email address/track to communicate decisions. The only time I think a mobile number would be important is if they had to communicate with you ASAP. But I assume they would then use your house phone or email...

hope I helped

I've noticed I can edit my phone number using track; does this edit the phone number on the ucas form? Will it negatively affect my ucas in anyway? (I know it wont, but just making sure )

It will edit the form, but it won't edit what Unis have on you.

It will edit the actual UCAS form, but I don't think it retrospectively changes the UCAS file that the institution has from your application, so you'd need to contact all your Unis ( it's really only there for the Confirmation/Clearing period)

If you forget your login details, and somehow can't remember the answers to all of your secret questions, UCAS may use your phone number to identify you.

If you're not answering your emails, and your referee also isn't responding, a uni may call you if they have an urgent question.

Unis may text you to send updates (these will be "log into Track to see an update" rather than "woohoo you have an offer")

So you're going to miss anything important, but having the correct phone number will be handy in some situations. If you change it on Track, all the unis will see the new number.

um, I hope not

On the track website it says that they will forward on my changed number to all the universities

That’s right. Ucas will pass on the changes to your universities.

It would be sensible to double check that the change went through to your firm and insurance universities in July next year. It’s around results day (and after) when you’re most likely to have texts or phone calls from universities.

UCAS don't text you about offers, that all comes through email.

The only texts I ever got from them were advertising products from their business partners.
