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!!
did you go to colchester sixth form college?

It’s not it’s because when you were applying you accepted commercial mailings from them. Name:  DE651DE5-1DA7-4834-AED4-3698A03501A4.jpg.jpeg

Sad to be missing out.
Pretty sure I didn't check the commercial mailings box more to do with saving paper as I thought it would be more stuff like that

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
Oh thank god, I haven't gotten one so I thought I failed to meet my firm grade requirements and was ****ting my pants more than ever for result's day. But it's pretty funny because I was browsing for a razor to buy online today lol

I got one of the free razors, deferred my place and I’m not even going to uni anymore so guessing they were just sent to anyone who opted in to be sent marketing stuff

Be grateful. I received a gillete razor must be worth £8 and that was 3 years ago so they must do it every year.

I think it may due to the opt-in box for commercial mailings as another user said
That's precisely the reason, and it's what the UCAS twitter account said as well.

With stuff like this you're bound to hear nonsense rumours. First reason I heard actually was that it was a sympathy gift for people who didn't make either of their offers.

Congratulations, you have failed to meet both of your offers. Here is a razor. 😂

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