Lucky you a bunch of applicants got their offers declined a day early.

Ucas are still tucked up in bed so we’re still waiting for an explanation and plan to put it right from them when they wake up at 8:30am

If they did extend the deadline, would that be for everyone who has yet to firm? I’m still not too sure which ones to pick.

Thanks for the quick replies.

Yes

It’s a mistake and while they can be a bit useless/daft they’re also not going to disadvantage any applicants because of their error.

Like I said above. Last time they did something like this they extended everyone’s deadline once they undid the error.

No idea but that’s usually a simpler solution for them than working out who the error affected and putting a tweak on just those applicant’s deadlines.

Ucas officially open their offices at 8:30am. Hopefully then but it might take them an hour to figure out the technical things they need to do to fix it.

So they may release a statement at around 8:30 then?

IMPORTANT - UCAS are aware that some applicants had a DBD decision (Declined by Default) entered last night - it is a UCAS technical glitch. The deadline is still tonight, not last night.

DONT PANIC - Your school should just contact UCAS asap to get it reset.

Maybe.
Or they might just release an apology at that time and then a statement later in the morning.

Oh okay, I was just wondering because that user seemed to have some sort of information regarding the issue.

No - the deadline is still tonight.
Applicants are still advised to get their decisions entered by 6pm as after that the call centre closes (no phone support if things go wrong) - although the deadline wont kick in until 23:59 TONIGHT.

Are you sure? Is there somewhere that has confirmed this?
