Applicants who have received all their decisions by 31 March should have replied to these decisions by 9 May. If for any reason students have failed to reply to their offers, they will have these offers automatically declined. Students in this situation will have seven days to contact us to change these replies.
For those students who receive their last decision by 10 May they will be expected to reply by 7 June. Further information about replying to offers is available on the UCAS website http://www.ucas.com/students/offers/replyingtoyouroffers which guides students to when offers are received and when replies are due to be made.
Before you leave for the summer holidays remember to keep contact details up-to-date on Track as your university or college choices may contact you. Students should update their address, email and telephone details.
Make a note of yourTrack username, password and Personal ID to use over the summer holiday. These will be especially important in August when students can check their situation when they have their results.
Extra has been open and available to eligible students since 24 February 2012. Extra is available to applicants who have used all five choices on their original application and have been either unsuccessful at all choices or declined their offers.
Extra for students is explained on the UCAS website: http://www.ucas.com/students/afteryouapply/extra and in the adviser’s section: http://www.ucas.com/advisers/sixsteps/offers/extra.
Extra gives students the opportunity to look for available places using Course Search http://www.ucas.com/students/coursesearch and choose those that may be of interest to them. Initially students are advised to contact universities and colleges themselves to discuss their requirements and to ensure that spaces are still available.
The final date for students to refer their application to a university or college through Extra is 4 July 2012.
