Replies to offers
Applicants that applied before the 15 January application closing date (extended to 22 January due to the severe weather conditions) will have received all their offers by now and should have made their replies. If for any reason students have failed to reply to their offers they will have been declined automatically on 5 May. Students in this situation will have 14 days to contact us to change this.

Summer holidays
Students must ensure that before they leave for the summer holidays to keep their contact details up to date on Track as their university or college choices may contact them. Students should update their address, email and telephone details.

Students need to make a note of their Track 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 26 February 2010. 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: student extra and in the adviser’s section: adviser extra.

Extra gives students the opportunity to look for available places using Course Search 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 6 July 20
