When you see an envelope from Ucas come through your letter box, you might be nervously wondering if it's an unconditional offer to study at your first choice uni.
Or you can relax because it's just tampons.
Lots of A-level students were pretty confused when they received an array of sanitary products in the post from Ucas.

Nice to know Ucas cares about periods though, right?
I'm glad UCAS care about my periods, maybe they will send paracetamol and a hot water bottle too

Even though it's a tad awkward.
Thanks to UCAS for sending me free pads and tampons in really subtle packaging??

Many just wanted their university places confirmed instead though.

It seems not everyone has received their free sanitary hamper yet, which is stressing some people out.
excuse me why didn't I get tampons from UCAS
-- beth (@bxthanie) July 23, 2016
I think I'm the only person who didn't receive tampons from @ucas_online, like bruh why don't you care about my menstrual cycle too

Ucas responded to one girl's confusion, to clear it all up (sort of, not really).
@sanahehsan Hi there. These were freebies from our Marketing Department. *CC

If you don't want them, this is quite a good idea though...
