No university places for 50,000 with good grades
"Students should forget about finding a university place through clearing, the new head of Ucas has warned, as analysis shows that at least 50,000 more sixth-formers with good grades will fail to get on a course this autumn compared with last year.
"In her first interview in the post, Mary Curnock Cook advised school-leavers to consider going to university later in life. I can't wave a magic wand and pretend that they are going to have to do anything other than reappraise their aspirations, she said.
"Ucas applications are already up by 23 per cent or 106,389 this year, but the number of places has been cut by 6,000. Last year, 30,000 good students failed to get into university."
