Black students more likely to have Uni applications looked at for fraud.

Black students are more likely to have their university applications flagged for potential fraud or errors than any other ethnic group, according to data from the Ucas admissions service.

Of the 5,160 forms flagged between 2013 and 2017, 52% were from black students.

Ucas said it was unclear why this is the case and it would work with organisations representing ethnic minority groups to examine the issue.

White students - 73% of all applicants - had 19% of flagged applications.

Black applicants made up around 9% of all university undergraduate applicants in the period.
