UT Auto Admit Percentage for recent years?

Does anyone have info on the UT Auto Admit Percentage for the last couple of years? I've found some conflicting numbers online. I'm trying to gauge the chances for my class.

The percentage of automatic admissions at the University of Texas at Austin has varied in recent years due to changes in legislation and fluctuations in the number of applicants. Currently, UT Austin uses the top 6% rule for auto admission, which applies to students graduating from a Texas high school and ranking within the top 6% of their class. This policy is in effect for students applying for Fall 2023 and 2024 admissions.

Before the top 6% rule, the auto admission threshold was at top 7% for the Fall 2021 and 2022 admissions cycles. Prior to that, it was top 6% rule again for Fall 2019 and 2020. Keep in mind that these percentages are determined by the Texas Legislature and can change over time depending on the size of the Texas high school graduating class and the capacity at UT Austin.

Even though the auto-admit policy does guarantee admission to UT Austin, it does not guarantee admission to specific majors or programs. Students who qualify for automatic admission will still need to submit a complete application, including essays, extracurricular activities, and any required test scores (if applicable), to compete for admission to their desired major. Those who aren't in the top 6% can still apply through holistic review, where factors like academic achievements, essays, and extracurriculars will be taken into consideration.
