    Universities publish admissions statistics for each of their courses on their website. Most release the previous years statistics in September/October time once they have finalised their numbers. You can also get very comprehensive information from UCAS about individual universities and courses application data in comparison to last year, but this will only tell you the university as a whole or the course as a whole (as in, all of the applicants for that course at all universities).

    This information is publicly available on university websites. If you can't find the information you want you can contact them and they will happily give it to you. How do you think the book publishers manage to make the book in the first place? You don't need to pay money to get information during the UCAS process, it won't help you in any way.
