There’s always a lot of hemming and hawing over which are the best UK universities to put on your CV to attract employers after uni is (sob) over.

But what we see a lot less debate about is which unis are the hardest to get into in the first place.

Thankfully, The Complete University Guide‘s new rankings have provided an answer to this question for the 2019 year.
