Alex Hayman, Which? Managing Director of Public Markets, said:
“As thousands of students throughout the UK receive their exam results this summer, these findings reveal how vitally important it is to make the right decision when applying to higher education.
“If you are applying to university in the near future, make sure you are clued up about the whole process, speak to your teachers, and don’t be afraid to get directly in touch with the universities that interest you.”
