    Oh! We didn't use any of them, so is it varying from school to school whether they use them?
    We were told it was the last year we were doing the old spec!

    EDIT: Isn't it the current AS's coming up into A2 that will be using the new A2 specs, as they used the new AS ones?

    EDIT: They were talking to an AS'er so that's why I got confused! And does it have to be important for me to ask about it ?

    Oh, right. Now I'm confused. Wow, I looked up your Uni and it looks great. I didn't know that it was the oldest Uni going. I'm going to LJMU which doesn't exactly have such an in-depth history, but hey! They do film studies where you are, which is suprising. I'm being random here. Please, excuse me!

    I'm not really up to speed with Track. Will I be able to check my place is confirmed on Track on the 19th or the 20th? All my exam boards are with Edexcel so I can check the results on line.

    Track is frozen sometime in the beginning/middle of August and only "unfrozen" on the morning of results day (usually about 7am).

    Therefore even if your university changes your offer to unconditional/unsuccesful before results day, between 12th - 19th August for example which can often be the case, you won't find out til track goes online on results day.

    So basically you'll find out only on results day, and usually before 9 o'clock.
