James Munson, Director of IT, UCAS said:

“Months of advanced planning with the Infosys team have enabled us to deliver our A-level results day Confirmation and Clearing service, meaning hundreds of thousands of students were able to log in that morning to see if they had secured their place at university or college.”

Rajesh K. Murthy, Executive Vice President and Global Head, Energy, Communications and Services, Infosys:

“With hundreds of thousands of students receiving their results on the same day, there is a massive spike in demand on the UCAS Track service around the world. Each applicant needs to be able to log in quickly on results day to see their status, and be able to use the Clearing process if they are still looking for a place. UCAS and Infosys have worked closely to ensure the systems are ready for students to take the next important step in their life.”
