Earlier this year, we made a number of places available for those schools that have proven popular with applicants and recruited well. We extended this offer to higher education providers in June.</p><p> </p><p>Since they were initially agreed, we have agreed increases to higher education institution (HEI) allocations for a number of reasons. For example, we allocated more places in physics and mathematics throughout the year and we also allowed transfers between particular subjects. The additional places allocated as a result of our offer in June are just part of changes agreed to HEI allocations.
