A Level Results 2019

As thousands of students find out their A level results today (15th August), figures show university applications have risen this year.

UCAS says nearly four in ten 18 year-olds applied for a place - despite there being fewer young people in that age group in the UK currently.

Fewer students have been accepted onto degree courses in the UK compared to last year.

Many students will also be going through clearing on A level results day.

However, new research shows 36% of UK adults are unaware of the university clearing process.

Take a Listen to Martyn Edwards, current director of marketing at Swansea university, who informs students what to do on day if things do not go to plan.

An advice line's been set up for those interested in apprenticeships and alternatives to university.

Training giant QA says it's the first such dedicated hotline offering access to over 500 apprenticeships at firms across the country.

The number is 0345 074 7825
