Education Error: UCAS says sorry for accepting 4,000 students by mistake

Teenage angst must have hit an all-time high in the United Kingdom as Universities and Colleges (UCAS) services apologized after their ’email error’ devastated many students ahead of their A-level results.

UCAS is a UK-based organisation whose main role is to manage the application process for the British universities.

They committed a huge mistake when they sent a wrong mail to the 4000 students who had applied to study at the University of Newcastle and Northumbria. The message by UCAS to promote Fusion Student Housing said,

‘You have been accepted at university and you will be studying at Newcastle next year – congratulations!’

Some students took to Twitter and expressed their disappointments saying the experience was “heart-wrenching”.
