UCAS keep sending people tampons and no-one knows why
Around this time of year, students are waiting to find hear from their conditional offers from UCAS, or firm acceptances from universities they got into.
What they aren't expecting from UCAS is tampons.
No way UCAS randomly sent me free samples of sanitary towels/tampons, actual wtf😳😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/VPwVLLd37V— Aimée (@aimeeplewsx) July 23, 2016
But that's precisely what they're being sent. Also sanitary towels.
You know, instead of acceptance letters.
I'd appreciate it more if UCAS sent me an unconditional rather than the nation fkin tampons— samar (@samarrafiq1) July 23, 2016
Or other things useful for university. Like money.
Send money not tampons #UCAS— Sixth Form Issues (@SixthFormIssues) July 23, 2016
Would've thought #UCAS would send a pack of ribbed johnnys for uni not a load of tampons and sanitary towels lmfao— hayley (@haayl3y) July 23, 2016
People are obviously confused.
And trying to figure out what message UCAS was trying to send them...

And are generally quite surprised about UCAS branching out...

But confused. Overwhelmingly confused.
Can someone explain why UCAS have sent me free samples of always products pic.twitter.com/a4MEHvQo3z— liv (@_yakimono_) July 23, 2016
Because, you know, even if this is some kind of marketing thing, it's at a time when these students were expecting to hear about their university places...
Not Always samples. With no letter of explanation whatsoever. Just an envelope crammed full of Always samples from the people who process your university applications.
