Ucas online system problems leave anticipating students distressed

Published On: 18 Aug 2012

 | Last Updated On: 18 Aug 2012

The Universities and College Admissions Service (Ucas) reported launched an online tracking system, through which students could track the developments in their application process. The online support system was supposed to help students streamline their applications and in smooth running of admission processes, which instead added to the already looming anxiety of the students. Students were unable to accept offers from the universities. Officials claim that the problem was due to heavy traffic on the website. However, they regret the inconvenience caused to the students for the same. For a short span of time in the evening and around three hours in the afternoon, colleges and universities faced issues processing decisions.

Universities have also been facing problems in monitoring the number of applicants they are recruiting as “weblink”- the Ucas site for universities to help keep track of enrollments was also affected. Authorities of De Montfort university claim that they had expected to recruit 400 students and made 320 offers out of which only 4 students had accepted. The universities are caught in a tizzy as the government has announced a fine on over recruitment of students. Though the actual amount has not been affirmed an approximate amount of £10000 per students is being expected.

However, the officials expect a busy day today, and assure smooth functioning of the admission process.
