    I was talking about for sixthform/college leavers specifically as the competition for undergraduate courses is unbelievably intense as it is.

    Mature students can apply for undergrad aswell. And look, career change. :woo:

    Well, aren't a lot of people returning to uni for second degrees after losing their jobs?? Only way to explain the lack of clearing spaces...

    Yes, obviously. That I clearly understand.

    What I don't understand is why you seem to have an issue with it?

    University is overrated anyways. Going back to uni to get another degree is pointless, and spaces should be reserved for those leaving sixth form/college within the past 2 years.

    I presume a large amount of the competition wouldn't come from sixth formers leaving but from older people wanting to go back to education (like me, oops).
