    How does everyone know that our universities won't have our results yet?
    They have had our papers for a while now so in my opinion, it is possible that your papers could have been marked.
    I'm not saying they have everyone's grades but they might have yours.
    I'm just curious as to why everyone immediatly said that the universities won't have your results.
    I mean what proof do they have?

    Most likely, the letter just wasn't meant to be sent though.
    Sigh.
    Thats what I thought initially. Mine is being marked by WJEC as well, so I thought they'd be finished sooner than whoever the examining board is in England and Scotland. I guess it's just wishing thinking

    I got that letter last week and rang up my tutor who told my results 'unofficially'. I did a BTEC.

    If it doesn't have your name at the top, I'd be very wary.

    Wasn't there a case a while back where a universtiy accidentally told everyone who applied that they'd been accepted?

    It could just be someone trying to have a laugh at your expense. I'd ring up and find out, someone could have just as easily made an innocent mistake

    I'd read it just as though you have an offer so they've sent out the details. Like my reading list which says congratulations at being given a place at Homerton College.

    Universities get the results on the Sunday before results day, so 4 days before.
