"Conditional unconditional" offers to be banned in EnglandWatch
What do you think about this?
They should just ban them altogether, as they really are a predatory marketing tactic used by unis to pressure students into accepting offers they might not otherwise.
The system is totally wrong. It is designed to get students to choose a university they otherwise wouldnt. The universities should not be blamed. They were merely trying to survive in the system Gove created. The fault lies entirely with Michelle Donelan and his colleagues. It is rich of her to complain about the system when her mates were the people who caused the problem by trying to create a market system.
People in year 13 or equivalent, i.e. who haven't yet got their grades and are still doing their a-levels/btec/whatever should not be given them. They only tempt people to go where they might not usually.
