    Last year from our school it was 34 out of 152. So it's pretty high. Around 26 got in. Mind you, I went to a grammar school but I doubt that means much these days.

    I think there's about 2 applicants per place and there's about 7k places, so around 14k applicants.

    Yea at each university there's about that many people per place. Everyone has 4 choices so the amount of people applying per place overall is the average of people per place universities get divided by four.

    If there's about 7 or 8 per place at every uni, then there's about 2 people per place overall. The most oversubscribed unis have a 15:1 applicantlace ratio and the least 6:1 or something like that.

    It's probably a bit higher now - if that data from Keele is correct than it's at around 2.8 now.

    Yeah I think it's around 24,000 applicants this year, an increase of around 17% from last year apparently.
    I'm not sure how many of them are school leavers, although I'm not exactly sure what you want to know op!
    There are 2 from ~150 applying from our school this year, a 100% increase from last year!

    There is a notch above 21k applicants. I've got the statistics from a post I made ages ago when the numbers first surfaced.

    21,389 Base applicants.
    - non-eu, since we don't compete against these
    18,979
    - Foundation courses
    ~18,700
    - GEP (Assuming you're a student)
    ~18,000

    ~7500 offers made.

    ~41% chance.

    The original base statistic and non-eu statistics were taken from UCAS.

    Lol no it isn't. Fail math is fail. There is a notch above 21k APPLICANTS. There are around 85k applications.
    21k applicants, about 7k places, that sounds similar enough to 2.8:1 to me? Are you sure it isn't you with the maths fail?

    Applications. Not applicants. Each applicant gets 4xapplications.

    Yeah it is, my bad. That was an epic facepalm on my behalf. Edited my earlier post to hide my epic stupidity.

    I meant that there are loads of people who study in a comprehensive schools who want to and get into medicine too. Doing medicine depends on whether the person wants to do it, not by the school or college they attend. That's all.
