The NSW AND ACT Universities Admission Centre reports 25 000 non year-12 applications for this academic year, continuing a decline from the 2013-14 peak of just under 40 000. In contrast the number of individuals applying to universities on the basis of NSW 12 Year results was down by a bare 1000 from the 2015-16 peak of 45 000. While demand is steady NSW universities significantly increased their Y12 offers, from 52 000 to 65 000.
