I’ve submitted my application

So the ‘send’ button has been hit and now your application form is out there for your chosen universities to see. You’re probably feeling a mixture of relief at having submitted the form, together with a combination of excitement and nerves, wondering what offers you might get.

You might feel like you’re playing a bit of a waiting game, but there’s plenty to be thinking about in the meantime:

Prepare and revise

Speak to your teachers and advisors about any mock exam results you might have had and ask if they have any advice on preparing for your exams. It’s never too early to start thinking about putting a revision timetable together, and don’t forget to include coursework deadlines and practical assessment deadlines.

When will I hear back?

It’s worth keeping in mind a couple of deadline dates that universities use to reply back to you:


3 May 2018 - if you submitted your application by 15 January 2018, universities have until 3 May 2018 to make a decision.

12 July 2018 - if you sent your application between 15 January 2018 and 30 June 2018, then universities have until 12 July 2018 to make a decision.

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.

Conditional offer

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.

Unconditional offer

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.
