I was wondering... being as I find UCAS's service rather poor. Is there any reason why I couldn't set up a rival company?? Is it a goverment thing or anything like that??
In cases like this I think it best that one efficient agency control university admissions, otherwise it becomes unwieldy and inefficient.
I don't want to look at the German system, if I did I would apply to go to uni there!
bt i av a prob wit sum of their policies.....like why r we forced into makin a firm and an insurance choice afta we get all our decisions bac and be forced to decline all da otha offers made by otha unis, esp if we dnt get da rite grades afta for those unis? we may have to end up goin thru clearin which wud be a bigga hassle and made worse if u kno dat u may av got da grades 4 one of the offers u declined! . i suggest dat we shud be allowed an orda of choice 4 all da unis we got an offer frm so dat u dnt decline ne of da unis and relieve sum pressure on us! i av enouf probs as it is....
UCAS service seems rather responsive once they finally scan the kack forms in, why should we need a booklet to help us fill in a simple form???
Duno why they need to know our employment history either.
Another service may cause conflicts somehow, but nothing like having to goverments. (well that might be a cracking idea!)
Have you heard UCAS's hold music? Absolutley terrible. Give it a blast, you're gn'ted to get it... 0870 11 222 11.
anotha prob wit da firm and insurance choice thing is dat i have heard dat if u get da grades at da end of da year to go to ur firm choice, ul av to go!..even if u change ur mind and want to go sumwhere else.... u wont be able to change unless u reapply da followin yer
My experience with UCAS was pretty smooth and no problems. Also UCAS is a government owned company.
and I dont see how there could ever be a competitor to them, and more to the point why!
