Your Name’s On The List: Big Rise in University Acceptances

By August the 15th  (A-level results day),  some 386,000 applicants had been accepted into a UK university or college – 9% up on the previous year, and a record for results day.

Even better news for these students, most had got into their ‘firm choice’ establishment, around 345,000 of them.

This figure will go up as nearly 100, 000 students await results and decisions, and another 146,000 will have a chance to secure a place through clearing.

Universities are also allowed to take on extra students if they obtain grades of ABB or equivalent, whereas last year it was AAB.

The results this year also show that the number of students gaining top A* / A grades fell a little for the second year in a row, down from 26.6% of exam entries last year to 26.3% this year.

But, the overal pass rate continued its souring trend (of some 30 years) to a remarkably high looking 98.1%

There is also an increase in the number of students opting to take A-levels in Maths and Science, the biggest rise was in Economics.  Languages recorded a fall of of around 10% in French and German.
