UCAS Track Glitch - it's OK, you aren't really in Clearing! Watch

    I have a similar issue. I got my results on the 5th because I'm in Scotland and I definitely missed my offer because I made a mess of one of the exams. It still says 'Conditional Firm' but it has now stopped saying I'm in clearing, even though I should be having gone through Extra. It now just says I'm in Extra and I can apparently add an Extra choice.

    I've already been making contact with the firm, just hope this clears up quickly. Would be interested to know what caused this in the first place.

    I rang up UCAS to check, and got the most patronising woman ever. Who didn't seem to think there was an issue. Anyway, miraculously, when I logged back in today, my status has changed to "You are in Extra" which is an improvement I guess.

    That's weird.

    Were you in Extra before because that's just confusing especially considering that Extra ended over a month ago.

    Yeah, I got my place through extra.

    Well, up until a few days ago, it was saying the same thing "You are in extra).

    I just rang up again, and got a much more helpful woman, who said the whole clearing thing was a glitch, and that it is supposed to be telling me that i'm in extra.

    So now I only have student finance to worry about

    This doesn't improve my confidence in UCAS Track for results day. Imagine a thread: UCAS Track Glitch-It's okay you really aren't unconditional!!
