2018 cycle applicant figures – March deadline

These statistical releases describe applicants and applications from the 2018 UCAS cycle at the 24 March deadline. The 24 March deadline is applicable to some art and design courses.

This release includes 14 reports, and is in the same format as the main January 2018 deadline reporting. The tables published include applicant numbers by age, sex, country of domicile, ethnic group, POLAR3, POLAR4, SIMD 2016, country of institution applied to, and institution type (higher, medium, and lower tariff), as well as the number of applications (choices) by subject group.

A zip file of CSV files containing data from these reports is also available.

For this cycle, we have also introduced a subset of the sector-level reports for applicants to nursing courses (in subject group 'B7'). These reports include applicants who have made at least one choice to a 'B7' nursing course. The CSV file for these reports does not contain rows for which the value is four or fewer.

The primary set of statistics covers all applications in the UCAS Undergraduate scheme:

The additional reports cover nursing applicants:
