Is there really an 'A' level grade crisis?

If lots of 'A' level students have been 'downgraded' and fail to get to university,  how are the universities going to fill their courses?

Are other (less qualified) students going to leapfrog them?

Fewer foreign students want to come to UK so the universities will have to fill the courses with the same people. Or am I missing something?

    While it might shake things up a little, it seems pretty obvious to me that those other "less qualified" students are at as much of a risk for downgrading than the higher-scoring students. 

    And universities won't have trouble filling their courses; if necessary, they'll admit students with A-level scores below the usual requirement. If the usual requirement is AAA but they'll let you in with an AAB, who's going to complain?
