    Exactly this too. :yy:

    Everyone just has a different place in life. :hat2: I don't understand why the government are pushing for ~60% of the population to go to uni, and then complain about the subsequent lack of graduate jobs.
    They're also complaining about the lack of funding.

    Warwick University is currently conducting some very interesting research which focuses on higher education and the benefits to students who have degrees. They're looking at the sort of subjects studied, the field entered, the class of degree, and also the knock-on effect with so many people wanting to go into higher education (or being pushed into higher education). Once the full piece is finally finished and published, it should make for some very interesting reading.

    Yes, but why on earth would you want to discriminate against the intelligent poor?

    Why don't you give reasons for disagreeing instead of throwing around immature insults?

    I agree there are far too many university places. It's horrific seeing all these C, D, E and U students go to uni
    U students in uni?!?!?!

    And plus, isn't there an F and G offered at A level? But yes I agree to an extent, E grade students or lower should really not be offered a place in uni, but C is quite harsh, they would still manage a 2:2, and D students would manage a third degree.

    Can anyone see the irony in that?

    So you only want 50 unis for quite a large number of students. But then when you have 50 everyone will want to be in the top 20...

    It doesn't quite work like that; we don't go through life performing at and only at our preset level of ability. If you'd have said "would be likely to", I could probably agree with you.

    I agree with the general principle that the jump for a U-grade student would probably be far too large, without extenuating circumstances, for them to do well though.

    I sort of agree with the OP. I'd suspect some employers don't bother distinguishing between degrees of identical subject from two vastly different universities (red-bricks and ex-polys for example). This therefore devalues the degree of the people who have worked harder to be admitted into better universities, which isn't fair. The more intelligent may not be taking up the top jobs which is a bit regressive for the country's calibre of workforce. The people studying academic (not vocational) degrees at ex-polys are there because they can't get into better universities and therefore aren't suited to further study. These kind of people should not be encouraged to pursue further academic education but should be encouraged to support different areas of the country's workforce.

    There are subjects which are only taught at ex-poly universities due to their vocational nature, but if I wanted to pursue a career in graphic design or computer animation, I would be perfectly happy to receive a qualification from an art college for example rather than a university. Different kinds of education don't need to be mixed and everyone shouldn't be encouraged to strive for the same thing.

    Top 50? Why stop there? Make it top 10!
    your getting there but not quite. I say convert all of oxford and cambridge into nothing but a university and rename them red team and blue team! lol

    im not going to a top uni but based mine on the degree itself. prob could have got into one in top 50 but no point if they dont have the course i want.
