she sees that "your offers have been declined" (something along the line for that) , and then it says "you still have 14 days to contact ucas and liverppol for the offer to be changed" (something along the line of that), sorry i cannot remember what she said properly shes just panicking.

Yes, the impression I get is that there is still scope for the situation to be remedied if she acts within 14 days.

https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/a...-your-deadline

I would be inclined to suggest sending a message immediately via Facebook and then ringing at 08 30 on Monday morning.

There is a question on the UCAS FB page where someone asks what will happen if she has missed the June 10 deadline and UCAS answer as follows:

"If you missed the deadline to reply and your choices have been Declined By Default, don't worry!

You now have 14 days to call us and make your replies. To do so, please call us on 0371 468 0 468 or +44 330 333 0230 (from outside the UK) and one of the team will sort that out for you."

Hi there, I had that same message on UCAS track along the lines of ‘It may be possible for you to still accept these offers within 14 days’ (though for me it was because there was a glitch in the system and all my offers were declined without me doing it!! 😐). So I understand the major panic about losing a place after all these months of hard work and thinking what the hell am I gonna do next year.... But I made sure I rang up at 8:30 on the dot and I explained the situation to UCAS and they were really understanding and in about 5 minutes it was all resolved and they accepted the offer for me I also got a list ready for the morning, of the contact number of the unis themselves, to talk to them directly incase UCAS didn’t help, which is maybe something she could have at the ready. Like an above comment said, she could also contact them on Facebook/Insta. When I first saw my offers were gone in the stress of it all I contacted UCAS in a direct message on Facebook and someone actually replied after a while (though as it’s the weekend I don’t know if they will) 😅 Wish her luck from me, as long as she explains her situation and the misunderstanding of the deadline hopefully they’ll understand and it will all be fine xx

It’s not a problem. Ucas will put it right in 5 minutes over the phone on Monday.

Lots of applicants make this mistake, especially those with deferred offers.
