Figures show that around 345,300 student applicants have been accepted to their first choice of university.
A further 98,740 applicants are awaiting results or decisions, while 145,730 are eligible for clearing - the process that matches students without places to courses with vacancies.
Ucas chief executive Mary Curnock Cook said:
Students waiting to learn about university places can check whether they have been accepted by logging on to the Track service on the Ucas website.
Reforms to the A level and GCSE system will not devalue a degree, the University minister has told Daybreak.
David Willetts congratulated A level students on their hard work and dubbed University "a worthwhile experience" despite a dwindling job market and mountains of debt graduates can get into.
He also let slip his A level grades - two As, one B and a C.
