    Default Britain is now completing the process of destroying its educational sector

    British education was once world class. And possibly still is, at the best institutions and for the best and brightest.
    Of course such a position was intolerable. Everyone must be a winner.
    So polys became universities and grade inflation became the name of the game.

    Not being satisfied with ruining education in that fashion, the dumbing down has now escalated into giving complete thickos degrees.

    Shockingly, 38%, 38 fooking percent, FFS, of students offered a degree place now do not have to earn it.

    Anyone who still believes that post-Brexit, the UK's trajectory will be upwards is a deluded fool.

    Manufacturing Sector -> Engineering Sector -> Educational Sector -> Contracting Sector

    … it goes on.

    will it ever end?

    Jeez. I don't really believe what I'm reading. At Nottingham Trent "University" 41% of prospective students don't really have to achieve anything at all to get their place.

    Nottingham announced on Wednesday that it would no longer be using unconditional offers after this September, saying the increase in their use meant they were no longer attracting the applicants it wanted to encourage.
    Ouch. Talk about kicking every unconditionally placed student they have in the nuts. 40 odd percent of all the students according to the article.

    I think that's the Russell Group Nottingham Uni, rather than Nottingham Trent.
    That a Rusell Group uni would do it is astonishing, so no surprise they've backtracked.

    Russell group is still not too bad - though there has been an increase in numbers getting top grades which as you say will not help.

    Probably Russell group should be free education. The rest you can pay for - or you might as well just close them down.

    That might be unfair on a few courses - e.g. Marine biology at Bangor. But as you say the current system is broken.
