Over 409,000 students know they are accepted to UK universities and colleges as of today – up 3% against A level results day in 2014. This is the highest number of acceptances recorded on A level results day, and includes 362,000 students accepted to their first choice, up 3%, UCAS figures show.

There is a healthy increase of 5% in the number of UK 18 year olds placed in higher education and a 2% rise from 19 year olds, with fewer acceptances from older age groups.

More students from each of the four UK countries have been placed in higher education than at this point last year (England and Scotland +3%, Wales and Northern Ireland +1%).
