    because we need people in those jobs as well....? whats the point in EVERYBODY having a "degree" in media/film editing or whatever when there are so few jobs?
    Equally because 'EVERYBODY' as you put it has a degree nowadays then to not have one would put one at a severe disadvantage when it comes to jobs.

    This is slight hyperbole: it's still true that the majority of students choose not to go to university each year. Don't panic!

    Is there any point in going to a uni that will take you with such grades? Just accept that you're not an academic person and get a job.

    I agree with the emerging (and sensible, thank christ) consensus. Anything below CCC (which is fairly poor in itself, ain't it?) is simply not good enough for degree-level study. I've written many long posts on this topic, but the usual suspects persist in reeling off their pathertic, wooly-soft and demonstrably fallible arguments. I'll conclude simply by saying that if anybody is currently in University who had anything below CCC at A-Level, they don't deserve to be there. Period.

    Apparently not if you got Ds at GCSE, CDE at A level, and then attended DMU.

    Why don't they deserve to be there? If they want to go uni and get in debt with a poor academic record, so be it. Surely its up to them and i wouldnt waste my time 'writing long posts on this topic', as i couldnt care less, why do you?
