Spanish saw the second-biggest increase in test takers, with a 14.4% rise from the previous year, and was only surpassed by computer studies, which experienced nearly a 30% increase.

John Cridland, the director-general of the Confederation of British Industry, praised students for noting the utility of Spanish, saying he was encouraged that more students took on the “modern language that matters in business.”

More of these Spanish scholars will have a chance to study Spanish at their dream universities, as due to the government lifting the cap numbers of spots, universities can offer as many places as they want.
