These notes are designed to help you interpret the information provided in the UCAS decision lists. Below is a summary of the information that appears after you have accessed a particular UCAS Personal ID number.

Column 1:  Name of Institution
Column 2: UCAS Personal ID

This is your UCAS Personal ID Number. This is a ten digit number contained on all your correspondence from UCAS. Please double check your number to ensure that you access the correct information.

Column 3 & 4: Course & Course Name

This gives the UCAS code and description for the course to which you have applied, or for which you have been accepted. If you have held offers for more than one course at Stranmillis University College then both courses will be listed.

Column 5: Offer

This indicates the June Position of your application and may be Unconditional Firm (UF), Unconditional Insurance (UI), Conditional Firm (CF) or Conditional Insurance (CI).

This shows the current status of your application. There are 7 possible values for this column:

  1. Accepted for CF:
    This means that you have been accepted to this application choice.

    This means that you have been accepted to your Insurance Offer at Stranmillis.  If you are holding a CF at Stranmillis, or elsewhere, your decision for this course may still be pending.  If your CF choice accepts you in due course you will be committed to that choice and your insurance choice will lapse.
