Also how many unis do you apply to 5 and how many do you go to 1 so whatever the % is times it by 1/5 to get the actually number of people that will go the that uni

So it means that the PS doesn't matter much as long as you get the grades you've got a big chance of getting in? (and how do they decide if you will get those grades)

Because they're aren't that many applicants and also because the offer grades are pretty high.

PS may matter in some subjects, but I don't think it is vital for Physics (However it is better to have a good one than a **** one). The grades are what counts, and they go off your AS results and predicted grades.

Universities can now take an unlimited number of students who achieve ABB+, so they don't really lose much (apart from maybe reputation) by giving out offers. If students make the grades, they get 9k a year. If they don't? Meh.

Are you sure those figures are right? I've seen inaccurate figures on Which before.

A lot of universities are giving out a lot of unconditional offers to students, or really silly offers such as EEE.

It's all about money, it's all about marketing tactics to get a student to go to a particular university. And with the cap lifted, we might as well have the entire nation going to university.
