Ucas Clearing: A-level results day myths and reality

Results day is almost here, and for the thousands of students who miss out on their offers each year, that means one thing: Clearing.

Initial figures published this year showed the number of pupils in England taking French A-level this summer had fallen to less than 8,000, a decline of 8 per cent in one year, and German has decreased by 16 per cent to 2,890.

Numbers taking German have halved in ten years and figures for French have halved in the past 14 years.
