In light of the current situation UCAS have helped ease the pressure on students by extending the decision making deadline for 2020 entry. All students will have been advised via email by UCAS that there has been an extension to their decision deadline and the first deadline extension is now due, so it is a good time to encourage students to log-on to UCAS Track and confirm their firm and insurance choices if they haven’t already done so.
Decision deadline dates will vary depending on when students received their offers;
- If the last decision was received on or before 4 June 2020, then the reply date is 18 June 2020 (except if they are using Extra to find a place)
- If the last decision was received on or before 13 July 2020, then the reply date is 20 July 2020 (including Extra choices)
If students do not reply by these dates then their offers will be automatically declined.
Not all students will have access to their School or College email address on A-Level results day, so it is also a good time to remind students to please update their email address on UCAS to a personal email address to ensure they continue to receive the most up to information from both UCAS and the universities they are applying to.
