If UCAS Track shows you have been unsuccessful, we’re sorry - this means we’re unable to offer you your chosen course at Manchester Metropolitan University this year.

UCAS Track is not showing me as confirmed or unsuccessful with Manchester Met

If UCAS Track isn’t revealing the outcome of your application, please be patient. There could be several reasons for the delay.

If your offer is based on qualifications that UCAS cannot send to us, such as GCSEs, you’ll need to send scanned copies of your results as evidence to our admissions team (contact details are on your offer letter).

If you don't have this information or need help, please contact our Confirmation helpline on +44 (0)161 247 2931.

How should I send you evidence of my qualifications?

We receive most Level 3 qualifications (A-levels and BTECs) directly from UCAS. However, if there are some qualifications we haven’t received, you can scan copies and email them to the admission team. You’ll find the email address on your offer letter.

UCAS Track is showing my place with Manchester Met as confirmed

If UCAS Track is showing the place you want as confirmed, congratulations!

You’ll receive a letter from us about what happens next soon.
