Infosys Helps UCAS Connect Over 400,000 Students to Higher Education  

Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology solutions, today announced that it worked with UCAS on its busiest day of the year to place a record number of students at universities and colleges in the UK.

Infosys was appointed to support the technology system of UCAS earlier in 2014. The UK’s shared admissions service for higher education is benefiting from an IT partner with experience in managing mission critical systems.

Highlights

  • Infosys was appointed as management partner for the IT system earlier in 2014. A joint UCAS and Infosys team worked over a number of months to ensure the systems could handle the massive workload required on 14 August, A-level results day
  • Five million exam results were successfully uploaded to UCAS systems from over 130 files supplied by 36 awarding bodies
  • Around one million student logins were received from countries across the globe on multiple different channels and devices
  • Highest load recorded was a peak of 239 logins per second

Quotes

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.”
