Universities: 40% now get unconditional offers

Final analysis by UCAS shows that nearly 40% of 18 year olds now receive at least one ‘unconditional’ offer  (or an offer that would be unconditional if the applicant agrees to make the university their first choice ). While this continues to reflect growing marketisation and the desperate attempts of institutions to attract students – and in the case of many, to finance expansion programmes, the data also shows that there’s been a significant increase in unconditional offers to ‘disadvantaged’ students.

It also raises other issues. See a previous post on this issue  https://education-economy-society.com/2018/12/01/a-third-of-18-year-olds-now-get-unconditional-offers-whats-the-problem/
