After Receiving an Offer
Replying to an offer
If you’re made an offer, you have to reply via UCAS Track. There are certain deadlines in place for doing this and these all depend on when UCAS receive your last decision.
For more details about how it works, you can visit the UCAS Replying to your offer webpage which will tell you what everything means and what you need to do.
Here's a link to the accommodation web page
that should answer most of your questions.
Results Day and Clearing
On results day, you’ll be informed of whether you have received a place or not via UCAS Track. We will also contact you to inform you of the outcome.
There is always the option of Clearing if you haven’t got in, for whatever reason (or Adjustment if you’ve done much better than predicted).
I hope that all this is helpful to you!
