The Universities and Colleges Application Service (UCAS) has published its latest analysis of full-time undergraduate applications made by the 24 March 2017 deadline. Compared to the same point in 2016, there has been a decrease of 4% in the total number of applications. Further, the analysis shows this change is not evenly spread between subject groups or institutions in the different tariff groups.
