What is the UCAS embargo period?

Universities get to see your embargoed exam results early so we can prepare and make decisions in time for the official results publication date. They are highly confidential and we cannot share them with you.

The 'UCAS embargo period' means during this time there are severe restrictions over any communications we can have with you. Please bear that in mind if you contact us then.

You can’t apply for a Clearing place with us during the Embargo period, even if you already have your formal results.

So we can prepare properly, you cannot apply to Abertay from 5pm Friday 23 July – 8.30am Tuesday 10 August.

The official UCAS embargo period is:

12.00 noon Wednesday 4 August - 8.30am Tuesday 10 August (UK Time).
