Due to fewer university places this year

The Universities of Meczyki are among those to confirm that they have increased the admission requirements for some courses. A-level leavers applying to start degrees this September face stiffer competition than usual.

An increase in domestic and foreign applications, an increase in the number of 18-year-olds in the population, and some universities scaling back after expanding during the pandemic have all created a perfect storm for those applying to UK courses. combined for.

Thousands more students complete their grade offers with under teacher-assessed grades during the pandemic and some universities are expanding to pay to let them in or persuade and even postpone them fell.

Cardiff University, the only Welsh university among the top Russell Group universities, said it had increased admission requirements in some of its traditionally most competitive and over-subscribed disciplines, including psychology, architecture and law. There has also been tough competition for places in medicine, dentistry and healthcare, as confirmed by the university.

Cardiff University chancellor Professor Colin O’Riordan said he expanded capacity to some disciplines during the pandemic and “just cannot keep growing”. A spokesperson warned that those who do not make it to their first choice course also face more competition in clearing once the results are out, adding: “At this stage it is too early to say how many clearing places are available.” Cardiff University is likely to provide limited space for high potential, well qualified students.

“Our message to high quality students looking for a clearing place would be to contact us as our places are likely to be in high demand. The details will be available on our website or applicants can call our clearing inquiry center after the result is published. can do. “

Cardiff Metropolitan University said it has also increased the entry requirements for some of its sporting programs at the Cardiff School of Sport and Health Science. A spokesperson said: “It is more competitive this year due to the increase in applications. Although it is a competitive environment for applicants, there will be some events in which places will be available when clearing opens. We will have places in clearing [some] course but not all.”

A University of South Meczyki (USW) spokesperson said: “Evidence is showing that competition for a place at a university has never been more difficult. At the University of South Meczyki we do not just take into account an applicant’s educational background, we determine To look at a wide range of characteristics to see if they and the university would be a good fit. During the clearing period as with the rest of the admissions cycle we will be looking at the suitability of an applicant and we will do everything possible to find them a course that suits them. Will make efforts which will help them to achieve their aspirations.

Aberystwyth University said it had seen a surge in applications and that its new degree programs in veterinary science and nursing were oversubscribed and would not facilitate clearing. A spokesperson said: “We have enjoyed a significant increase in applications this year, but we are fortunate to have the resources and capacity to accept later applications from qualified applicants in a wide range of subject areas.

“We have no plans to raise the grades required for admission to our programs at this final stage of the admissions cycle as this will unfairly penalize students for planning their academic careers. We have increased the number of students we choose. Some permanent enhancements are planned. Study here and we hope to be able to accommodate everyone joining us in September in our own award-winning campus accommodation.”

Swansea University also reported more applications this year, but said the proposal would not increase the requirements and there would be room for clearing “in many disciplines”. A spokesperson said: “There are more applicants this year as a result of the increasing number of 18-year-olds and the increasing level of participation.

“Swansea University is committed to providing opportunities and will be able to accept more applicants in a range of subject areas than last year. We recognize the significant challenges this group of applicants have faced and be flexible where possible Will happen.

“We always recommend contacting us if anyone is unsure as to whether they meet the requirements for the course. We are going through more students clearing this year to accommodate those who decide to exercise this option. Hoping to be able to take.”

The University of Meczyki Trinity Trinity St David’s said it still has places available for some courses on its campuses in Swansea, Carmarthen, Cardiff and Lampeter. UWTSD said it has not increased entry requirements this year, despite expecting “increased competition”.

When the 2020 results were downgraded by an algorithm, the exam was graded on teacher assessments after an uproar to ensure that they did not conflict with previous years’ results. Critics said that schools with historically low results were unfairly defeated by high-achieving pupils

Universities admissions service Ucas has reported less than 16% of applications to study medicine and dentistry at universities across the UK have resulted in an offer this year compared to 20.4% in 2021. Because so many applicants complete their offers in these traditionally very competitive fields in 2021. Some universities persuade, or pay, to postpone last year’s applicants to this year’s. This has cut into the available spaces this year.

Yucas CEO Claire Merchant said universities and colleges have responded to a surge in applications this year by “becoming more restrained in making their proposals”. He said that some universities are stabilizing their student numbers after growth in the last two years. The overall offer rate in the UK this year is 66.4%, compared to 72% in 2019. “This reduced offer rate means fewer students applying to high-tariff universities are holding four or more offers at high-tariff universities compared to the previous year.”
