No guaranteed university places for many A-level students

Students across much of Britain are about to receive their A-level results and the pass rate is expected to rise again.

But there is no guaranteed place at university even for those with a clutch of A-grades.

An estimated 200,000 students are likely to emerge without a place and there is likely to be a sharp rise in the numbers of those young people not in employment, education or training.
