I just can’t believe that the UCAS website is down…. Of all the sites a Uni application portal isn’t loading like wtf 😭😭😭😭😭😭


@_davidwolffe on 2022-10-23 18:18:34+00
@ucas_online Why are you sending us UCAS update emails when your website is down 🤷

@_davidwolffe on 2022-10-22 12:27:45+00
@sophoiyss @ucas_online I think it’s Manchester, as all my other unis are early deadline or Scottish. But it’s still a pisstake - they shouldn’t be sending out update emails while their website is down.


@sophoiyss on 2022-10-21 19:24:45+00
@ucas_online , got an email saying there's an update to my application... but the website is down for maintenance. is there anything i can do to find out what it is about?

@lucaskagiso The app is down. And I don't know what is going on ai. Cause didn't do any payments Nna.


@ArifArshaaq on 2022-07-30 10:12:10+00
@ucas_online do you think its fair for your advisors to doge calls from applicants, especially considering the website is down for maintenance? Every-time I’ve tried to call, someone answers and hangs up immediately. https://t.co/cjIaNhmmHw

@LucasDorminy @WorkWorldview Very interested, but website is down

@UnluckyDova @LucasBrinton3 @HIDIVEofficial Also, for anyone wondering, the app is down as well. You can load it up, sign in and browse stuff all you want, but the videos are all unavailable. But hey, at least you can sign in and see all the anime you can't watch, right?


@brightestabyss on 2022-06-07 08:36:54+00
@CaucasusEdition Your website is down, hopefully it can be fixed quickly https://t.co/WoeNNRXRNu

@lhungg06 If your website is down, let's take a look to see what action needs to be taken, Lucas. Please reply in a DM with your customer number, hosted domain, and details of the issue, so we can review for you. ^T https://t.co/rYq25s2Pfj

@MAVTV @WhenTruth @Lucas_Oil @ProMotocross How does this happen? It’s amazing. You guys have had like five months to prepare and within 20 minutes of going live, your app is down already. 125novices running mavtv @imtravismarx could build you a better app and it would be out Friday.


@M58952223 on 2022-05-28 17:00:01+00
@MAVTV @Lucas_Oil @ProMotocross your MavTV Plus website is down and will not allow signup and viewing.

@CarolineLucas @ukhomeoffice We are waiting for a visa for my 12 year-old cousin. The Appointment at Vilnius TLS was one month after we sent an application. It has now been almost 3 weeks after the biometrics were done (when we were told 5-7 days turnaround). Today the TLS website is down #shameful

What should I do if UCAS is unavailable?
If UCAS is UP but you can't load the page, here are some helpful troubleshooting steps:
Refresh
Try refreshing your browser page or close any accompanying applications and retry opening them.
Check if access to UCAS is blocked
Access to UCAS may be blocked due to an antivirus or firewall configuration either on your own computer or phone or by an employer or network. Check for anti-virus programs or firewalls installed on your machine. Alternatively, try to use the website or app via another network like one on a mobile phone so you can access UCAS.
Clear browser cache and cookies
Try clearing your browser cache and cookies and change the IP address of the computer by disconnecting and reconnecting the internet. Then try to access UCAS again.
DNS Cache
To clear the DNS cache on your computer, look up instructions for your specific operating system online. Then try to access the UCAS site again.
Web Browser Plugins
If you are still having trouble accessing UCAS, you may try to disable web browser plugins (like ad-blockers) which may be interfering with access to UCAS
