A-level results day and Clearing 2019: reasons to be cheerful

12 August 2019
As A-level results day approaches, UUK’s Daniel Wake looks at recent trends in university admissions, and provides some final information to applicants, who for the first time can choose to put themselves into ‘Clearing’.

This data visualisation provides an interim update of our annual Patterns and trends publication.​

Included in the visualisation are updated versions of some of the charts originally found in our 2015 publication.​ 

Our full Patterns and trends report will be published in spring 2017. We have modified the timing of publication to better align with the annual release of source data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). We anticipate that our full Patterns and trends publication will, from now on, be published annually in spring each year.
