State school participation rate

This table shows the percentage of former state school pupils starting full-time first degree courses at UK universities in 2006-07.

Institutions are listed alphabetically by home nation.

The second figure is the "benchmark" rate set by the funding council - using a methodology contested by some.

The final column shows whether the actual percentage was above (+) or below (-) the benchmark by an amount statisticians regard as significant.
