UCAS, the people who basically decide what uni you’re going to, have been sending out a bizarre ‘gift’ to students across the country.
For whatever reason, they’re sending tampons and sanitary towels to ‘lucky’ students who are pretty baffled by the whole thing, to be honest.
Hundreds have taken to Twitter to let people know about their envelopes from UCAS which proudly declare: ‘Because the best times call for the best protection’.
The envelopes also come with information about prospective universities along with samples from Always and Tampax.
Some people had theories…
Ucas sending free tampons and sanitary towels in the post will come in handy to soak up my sadness and disappointment on results day x
