Every year lots of newspapers enjoy running stories about how X number of people are going to university this year and how Y many people passed the new A Levels etc.

Here is a place to post the news you see and offer your thoughts, as well as to share information about anything that surprises you this year.

Post here regarding any university treating applicants poorly on results day, any university that's dropping their grades by a surprising amount or any institutions which are not being as helpful as they normally are this year.

Follow this thread for live updates as we head into a stressful period of time for many.

If you're receiving your results this year good look, you can find more info on A Levels and on Clearing using the links below...

Brasenose college Oxford had a problem with the post yesterday and so not all letters have been mailed. UCAS will be updating as expected though. Anyone waiting on news from Brasenose, don't panic if you receive nothing in the post.

I don't really understand why they keep quoting the 0.1% extra girls that have A-A* but the 0.7% extra boys that have A* seems to be swept under the rug.
