No. Unis are unaware of your family's uni history, thus it does not affect your chances whatsoever.
Don't they see that part of the UCAS application then?
yes they do; yes you are - you aren't expected to have achieved as good GCSE results.
Family history? Lol, if the unis saw my family history I wouldn't be able to even mention their name.
They've made university accessible to everyone, so no, they obvs don't make a uni offer with bias from your family history.
csas takes it into account
yeah some places do take it into account.. you'd have to read through the relevant admissions statements
I stated on my UCAS statement that I come from a graduate family. While it wont hold anything against you, it helps to come from a uni background
off topic I know:
love Mr.Dangerous' bangra pic
your doing good puttar...
I hope it does work that way because I should be the first female in my family that goes to Uni...
I doubt it will have any bearing on your likelihood of offers whatsoever.
My admissions advisor did say that if you tell them you are a first timer at university, some unis might take that in account. But of course, they will be looking at results and personal statements more importantly.
on the ucas form it asks doesnt it?
i think its disgusting - but yea i suppose they might look at it yes
There's a correlation between parents and children attending university, yes. I believe the primary cause of this is genetic, but also education, upbringing and expectation also all have significant roles.
So when you say they take it into account, is it favourable to have a graduate background?
