    A number of you have reported that your Track is showing that you are in Clearing when you can't possibly be.

    UCAS has advised people who've contacted them to query this that it's a glitch and to ignore it. Whatever you do don't try and add a Clearing choice :tongue: as this will really mess things up.

    Presumably UCAS are working on it and if we hear any more I'll update this post.

    If the status of your firm and your insurance still remain conditional and haven't changed to being rejected then you are not in clearing.

    If it shows a clearing number then you are in clearing...if it doesn't then you are NOT in clearing

    try to read things carefully when it comes to ucas.....it says 'IF you have added a choice' meaning it may be a general message and not applicable to yourself.
    I have a offer firmed from Birmingham, its conditional
    but it says my application is currently in clearing =S

    "The current status of your application is:
    You are in Clearing"


    its got a clearing number and all
    anyone got any answers for this? Its really worrying me

    If you have clearing on your ucas maybe something has gone wrong with your application. You could have applied for clearing without realising therefore voiding your choices. I doubt UCAS would put you through clearing before you get your results. So maybe it is a glitch.

    If your firm is still saying conditional, then I'm guessing it's just a glitch on the website. Give UCAS a call though just to make sure.

    That is quite strange. Did you do A-Levels?

    i'm in exactly the same position as you. I have a conditiona firm offer with birmingham but the status of my application says that i am in clearing and i also have a clearing number. I called up UCAS and they said it was a glitch in the system and alot of people are experiencing it. They said it should be sorted out before results day and not to worry. Also whatever you do, don't click on the 'add clearing choice' button, at the bottom of the choices page, as this will mess up your whole application.
    hope this helps

    Have you had results come through recently, and if so did you meet your offer conditions? [I am assuming that 'you have accepted an offer' was what you expected to see.]

    UPDATE: Turns out it's a glitch: see below

    It may be a glitch. It may be a general message. But when I log into track its telling me :



    The current status of your application is:
    You are in Clearing

    Your Clearing Number for correspondence with the Institutions is ------

    Yet it still shows my offer as "Conditional Firm"

    I've tried ringing my university, and UCAS, but its obviously saturday, and no ones around.


    Any idea whats going on, so I'm not sat here having a heart attack for the next 3 days? Please.

    Probably a technical glitch... sit it out until Monday and phone them up.

    Have you got your results yet or anything like that? If you're doing A-levels, then it's almost certainly a technical glitch, because the unis won't have your results yet.

    It's a glitch - others have reported it too. If you haven't had your results yet you're OK!

    Hopefully we won't be needing those Clearing numbers!

    Just be sure not to actually do anything with that number; avoid pressing buttons if you've not seen them before and are unsure of what they'll do.... or you could mess up the application!

    the fact that you put "dont panic" in the name autmatically makes people panic and think:

    " Hmm, track glitch...don't panic. I'm not panicking, am i panicking? I could be! AHH!! Must not panic!!! STOP PANICKING!!!"

    Don't panic, Mr Mainwaring

    But I'll change it if it makes you feel better
