Track your progress
Keep an eye on any updates to your application on your UCAS Track. 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 to sign up. You’ll be able to check if any of your choices offers you a place, as well as reply to your offers.
Making sense of your offers
If you receive an email telling you that your UCAS Track has been updated, it could mean that one of your choices has made you an offer, or that your application has been unsuccessful.
This means that you have been offered a place, providing you meet certain conditions. This could mean that you must achieve certain grades and will usually mean that your offer can’t be confirmed until you receive all of your results.
If you receive an unconditional offer, it means that there are no conditions attached to the offer and the place is yours, should you choose to accept it. If you’ve received an unconditional offer before you’ve got your results, then remember it’s important to continue to work hard to achieve your predicted grades.
That means that your application has been unsuccessful and you have not been offered a place on the course. You may be given a reason for the decision, but if not, most universities are happy to provide feedback.
If you have changed your mind about one of your choices, you can ask the university to withdraw your choice at that institution. You can also withdraw at UCAS via Track. This will then show as withdrawn on your Track.
