UK coronavirus: university admissions cap to be lifted in England – as it happened

The recently announced plan to cap the number of students English universities can recruit is to be removed, the Department for Education has just confirmed.

A spokesman said those pupils who missed out on places at their first choice institutions will be asked to go back and speak to them about reversing that decision if their new grades are good enough – and ministers will expect universities to be flexible.

In order to create extra capacity, the planned cap will not apply. This refers also to a limit on the number of students from England who can enrol at universities in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
