Record numbers of students are heading to university this year, with more than 400,000 already accepted on to degree courses.
As of midnight, 409,410 people had been accepted on to higher education courses in the UK, up 3% - around an extra 13,000 students - compared to the same point last year.
This is the highest number of acceptances recorded on A-level results day, admissions service Ucas said.
Students who didn't get the results they wanted when they opened their A-levels today have been told not to worry and to consider their next move carefully.
Annie Dobson, from Ucas, advised students to contact their chosen universities as they may have accepted them anyway even if they have not got the exact grades.
Universities could offer a record number of places after the Government lifted the cap on the amount of students that institutions in England can accept.

Sixth form colleges have dropped courses in sciences and languages over "serious threats" from funding cuts, a survey shows.
The poll, carried out by the Sixth Form College Association (SFCA), also revealed a third of college leaders believe their institutions will not be able to operate after 2020 without more investment.
The findings have prompted an urgent review into education funding.
SCFA deputy chief executive James Kewin said: "The sector cannot survive on starvation rations and without more investment sixth form colleges will be unable to provide young people with the high-quality education they need to progress to higher education and employment."
Since 2011, of the 93 sixth form colleges in England 72 said they had been forced to drop courses.
Some 39% have stopped offering modern foreign language A-levels, such as French, German and Spanish, while 24% cut science, maths and engineering options.
More than three quarters of colleges said they had reduced or removed extra-curricular activities such as sport and drama.
