We expect that the total number of full-time students in higher education this year will be bigger than in any year before 2010.
Therefore this shows the benefits of our reforms coming through already. More students are going to their first choice institution. Moreover, acceptance rates for applicants from disadvantaged areas increased this year.
Our reforms are helping students to make well-informed choices using better information.
