Commenting on A-Level results day, a spokesperson for Universities Wales, said:
“Congratulations to all students who collected exam results today.
“Over the past 18 months, students have worked incredibly hard under the most challenging circumstances and it is really encouraging to see their dedication pay off, with record numbers of applicants securing a place at their first choice of university this autumn.
“It’s particularly positive to see that so many young people in Wales continue to value the benefits of university, with the proportion of 18-year-olds in Wales applying to study at university at record levels.
“For those who did not get the results they had hoped, or are still undecided, there are many options in Wales available to students through clearing. Universities throughout Wales are providing places through clearing and have advisors waiting to advise students on the options available to them.
“Admissions teams up and down the country will be working incredibly hard to make sure students find a course which is right for them. Approaches will inevitably vary by institution, but universities in Wales are committed to doing all they can to support students’ progress to higher education.
“Wales’ universities look forward to welcoming all new and returning students. Learners can look forward to high-quality and rewarding courses, with a leading student experience, to help them fulfil their potential.”
