Almost half of the UK's top universities took on fewer students last year following the Government's radical overhaul of the system, figures show.
In total, 10 out of 24 Russell Group institutions, considered among the leading universities in the country, had fewer accepted applicants in 2012, according to data published by UCAS.
The statistics also show that a number of other universities saw a dramatic drop in students, including London Metropolitan University, which saw acceptances fall by more than 3,000.
