Submitted your application and waiting to hear back?

The SEND button has been pressed and now your UCAS application is out there for your chosen universities to see – and it is both exciting and scary!

It could be easy to feel like you’re in limbo while you’re waiting to hear back but this is the time to make your experiences really count! 

Speak to your teachers and advisors about your mock exam results and any advice they have for exam preparation.

It is never too early to start creating a revision timetable, and if your courses involve coursework or practical assessments remember to include these as everything will contribute to your final marks!

Dates you're likely to hear back from universities

Now you’re playing the waiting game but universities have deadlines for replying back to you, just the same as you had your application deadline.

Don't forget that we recieve many thousands of applications for our courses every year, so don't worry if you don't hear back immediately. We want to ensure that each application is given teh time and attention that it deserves!

You can expect to get a response from universities by:

3th May 2018 – if you sent your application by 15th January 2018.

19th July 2018 – if you sent your application by 30th June 2018.

Track your progress

To hear back from your chosen universities, you don’t need to sit by your post-box every day as you can use Track instead! 

You can sign in at any point after you’ve sent off your application and whenever there is an update, UCAS will email the address you used on sign up.

Track is where you’ll be able to check if any of your choices offer you a place, as well as where you can reply to your offers.

How to make sense of your offers

You’ve received a magical email telling you that UCAS track has been updated but what offers can a university make you?

Conditional offer

If you receive this type of offer, it will most likely mean waiting until results day in the summer to see if you meet the offer conditions. This could involve a general grades requirement, or particular grades in specific subject areas.

Unconditional offer

This means you’ve already met the entry requirements so they want you and the place on the course is yours! This is really great to receive, but still remember to carefully consider all your offers and check whether there is anything else you need to do. 


This means you have not been offered a place on the course. You may be provided with a reason, or you can contact them to discuss if you would like feedback on the decision.

Don’t worry though – you might be able to add extra choices using UCAS Extra or reapply at a later date.


You are allowed to change your mind and withdraw from a choice – but equally you can ask the University to withdraw the choice for you! Keep an eye on Track and your emails for potential interview dates and to make sure you don’t miss anything.
