    I've noticed that the level of UCAS points required for entry 2017 has been lowered for some universities. This will mean it will be easier for students to get onto the course which can be a good thing however, on the other hand, what does this mean to the profession? Interesting times ahead for Health professions.

    The UCAS tariff has changed for 2017 in how points are calculated so that could explain it

    Funding has changed for healthcare courses and universities may be suspecting that they will not get the sheer number of applicants as at present.
