A comment on 15 October applicant statistics from Mary Curnock Cook, UCAS Chief Executive.
Commenting on the undergraduate applicant statistics released on Wednesday 24 October, UCAS Chief Executive Mary Curnock Cook said:
'These figures for applicants to Oxford, Cambridge, medicine, veterinary and dentistry courses are encouraging. Not only are they up against last year but also on 2011. Although this is a subset of applicants for higher education at the highest levels of achievement, I remain optimistic about overall demand in the 2013 cycle.'
