MillionPlus, the Association for Modern Universities, has today (18 August) commented on A level results day.
Rachel Hewitt, Chief Executive of MillionPlus, said::
“As hundreds of thousands of students receive their A level, BTEC and T Level results we offer our warmest congratulations to the overwhelming majority who have been rewarded with a place at their firm choice.
“Record demand for places is pleasing and demonstrates that higher education remains a popular choice for students and their families. With modern universities at the forefront of widening participation, that we have also seen a shrinking gap between the most and least advantaged students is a hugely positive trend and one we hope to see continue.
“For those disappointed this morning: take a deep breath and a little time to consider your options. Through the Clearing process thousands of places remain to be filled at outstanding universities across the country.”
