No they didn't, 50% yes, but nobody suggested 80...
Check their manifesto from 2010. 80% was a bit off, I'll admit, but nonetheless they have 75% as an aim for 'some form of higher education'. Now you could argue that they'd send kids to go on to do technical apprenticeships but this was the government whose line was to get as many people as possible into university to make themselves look good regardless of effects. Labour could restart Britain's almost dead technical training as much as I could blast myself off into space to Jupiter. Not like the Tories have done much better.
