Among university applicants who obtained three degrees D in level A, 80% succeeded in obtaining positions in 2018, according to admission figures.

This was a year with less than 18 years Olds, which saw universities compete to attract students.

Admissions data from Ucas show that Northern Ireland had the highest entrance rate among the four education systems in the United Kingdom.

But London was by far the highest region for admission to university: one third more than anywhere else in England.

Ucas' annual report on university admissions shows that this was a year particularly good for applicants.

A demographic drop in 18-year-olds and financial pressure to recruit made many universities take a generous approach to applicants, including those who did not meet their expected qualifications.

Leeward ratings

Nearly 77% of selected applicants scored lower than predicted – an admissions service says they want to work with schools to get more accurate predictions next year.

It is more likely that applicants who obtained three degrees D get a place, with 80% success.

That Those who obtained CCC or less had an 84% success rate.

About 10% were obtaining vocational degrees such as BTecs instead of A-levels, and more than 80% of them were successful.

But those with high scores in A, such as two or three As grades – had a slightly lower probability of success this year, due to an increase in the number of applications in the most competitive places, such as medicine or in Oxford and Cambridge.

These high-achieving students were still very likely to get a place, if not their first choice, with entrance rates higher than 90%.

In general, in all applicants with A levels, there was almost a 90% chance that the applicant would find a place.

This year showed a record proportion of 18-year-olds in England who earned a place in the university: almost 34% and the sixth consecutive increase.

Northern Ireland still has the highest income rate, with 35%, and Wales was 30%.

Scotland was lower, with 27%, but Ucas says that this figure is reduced because the admission service covers only part of the Scottish system.

London, an outlier

There were large regional differences within England, with London significantly higher than anywhere else, with 42% of 18 year olds in the capital going directly to the university.

In comparison, in the southwest, the income rate was 29% and 20% in the Northeast.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds said the figures showed the need for universities to work harder to recruit underrepresented groups, regardless of where they live or their social background.

"While potential and talent are evenly distributed, the opportunities to create most of the time are not."

"There is no reason why a working-class white child who grows in Sunderland or Somerset is less likely to go to college than any other child growing up in this country.

"We are aware of the different rates of university access for different groups and it is simply unacceptable that universities do not act to increase your efforts to reach potential talents across the country. "

The Student Office, which regulates higher education, is publishing long-term goals to address inequalities in access to university.

In the next 20 years, he hopes that highly selective universities will put an end to the recruitment gap between students of the richest and the poorest.

There are also calls to address the "unexplained gap" in the grades of black and white students.

Chris Millward, director of the regulator for fair access, said: "Our ambition is that the future Our generations should have the same opportunities to access and succeed in higher education."

"We are committed to achieving change transformer, so our goals are ambitious. But they are realistic if universities make equality a priority and take the actions at their disposal. "
