    I don't understand the point of having UCAS track if uni's don't bother to contact UCAS to update it? Iv only had letters so far nothing on track and have had to contact the universities separately and request that they update and inform UCAS of either rejections or offers. I get UCAS is a necessity but if uni's don't bother letting UCAS know when they have given offers or rejections, I see little point in having track. Anybody else had a similar issue?
