marking is almost certainly complete, there might be a few loose ends of moderation still to come back , but as others have pointed out - HEIs and the Printers have the results several days before the realease date and they aim to have them arrive in school the day before result;s day

i don’t know that’s why i asked aha

i’ve just heard a lot of things about people having to wait for unis to make a decision after results day thus i thought they received results at the same time as us

They go through the 'firms' and see how many have the grades - they get places. Most then go through 'firm' near misses and do the same [reading PS again and any school letters re 'issues']. Then they will repeat with insurance seeing who they will take if they miss their firm. Everyone communicates with UCAS so they can check places. Once that's done thy might go through numbers again - do thy want more near misses or offer clearing places? They should then know what places they have although rejections and adjustment might change that.

it;s a little bit less strictly regulated than it used to be in that the penalities for oversubscription from the funding / commissioning side of things are minimal these days compared to 10 or 20 years ago

Yes but there will still be a maximum of places they will offer owing to room capacity, tutor workload, timetabling, ..

Would there be a chance of hearing back from them before the 16th?

UCAS is locked and unis are not supposed to contact before the 16th. You might get an e-mail from your uni on 15th or early on 16th before Track is openbut don't bet on it..

overshooting by a few people used to mean big 'fines' and loads of hassle for a HEI there were really quite strict quotas on all subjects not just the ones HEE are involved with ( as that is placement dependent as well )

it used to happen , which was why 'adjustment' couldn't happen before the rules were changed , you had to beg to be released by your firm and the go through clearing or decline your place exit UCAS for that year and take a gap yah and apply with known results in the next cycle ( but if successful you got an unconditional offer there - as unconditionals used to only be given to people who fully met the entry conditions for a course - the past equivalent to the current sort of unconditional was a 'EE' offer i.e. you had to pass any 2 of you a levels at any grade / equivalent weight and grade of BTECs )

Probably yes bc the results are usually given to unis 2 weeks before they are officially released to students.
