    The NSS is used to get final year student feedback on courses. This data is then used to help prospective students make a decision about the university.

    Absolutely not! The NUS has become an absolute laughing stock. Instead of doing what it should be doing, which is helping students fight for things that they actually care about, it seems to just be a platform for egotistical students who don't want to stop being a student and grow up, to shout out to people about their own beliefs, when they seem to actually not give a **** about what students actually want.

    I see this with the SU at my university, where some (not all, granted) of the officers just use the SU to do their own thing, and not actually really change much for the better, and especially not really what the students want.

    I'm a bit out of the loop here, do I have this right?

    The National Union of Students is blocking the honest data collection of students in their final year for some reason which presumably actually serves to detriment students despite boycotting causing a far more considerable detriment?
