UCAS sending out razors and tampons? Watch

I saw on Twitter that UCAS were sending out razors and tampons, and someone said that they were being sent out to students who met their firm offer only.

Does this mean, given that I haven't gotten one, that I didn't meet my firm offer?

I know this thread probably sounds stupid and pretty funny, the idea of getting a sanitary/grooming product as a sign of being accepted into an academic institution, but it is serious. Can someone confirm or dispel this rumour?

They're definitely sending them out, but I just don't know if its for all UCAS applicants or just the ones who met their firm offers.

Yeah they sent me a razor (quite a nice one too). I'd like to think it's an early indicator of me meeting my firm offer, but it probably isn't. I'd imagine they send them to everyone

My cousin got period pads from them. Tbh, I'd be happy if they sent me some, who doesn't want free stuff. Save yourself £2 at Superdrug 😩

Its not don't worry Ucas replied to someone saying that it was because they opted for marketing https://twitter.com/DoorConnoisseur/...84211747938304

Update: I've confirmed why some people aren't getting them. It's not to do with offers, it's whether you checked the opt-in box for commercial mailings in your application. People who didn't check it don't get the free stuff

They sent me some and I've already been at uni for a year so I don't think it's anything to do with whether you've met your firm or insurance choices or not.

Good luck with your results and getting into university!!

I think they must be sending them out to everyone - otherwise they'd be breaking the embargo? Or if it is to firm offer holders only they would need to wait until after results day... :beard:

I was so confused when I got a razor from UCAS. Thought it was like a sympathy gift because I failed or something

I think it may due to the opt-in box for commercial mailings as another user said
