A record number of university applicants and the recession are thought to have made the desperate scramble for places more intense than ever, with 1,813 more students securing places in the first day of clearing yesterday than this time last year.
Can I replace "in the first day" with "on the first day"?
Some 377,658 students have confirmed their places – 31,601 more than last year – after the A-level pass rate climbed to 97.5% and the proportion of papers awarded an A grade rose to 26.7%.
Does "some" mean "around"? If it does, why is it followed by a number given to the units digit?
Thanks in advance
