We keep being told that the NHS could not survive without Dr/Nurses/General Staff from the EU & outwith the EU. Why do we not train more? A girl in my school wants to be a Dr. She is bright with common sense. Higher Results 4 A passes 1 B pass. She has been told that she will not be able to apply for medicine at the uni she wants to attend. Having visited A&E recently I was worried that the Dr treating me had a very shake hold on oral English. It did not give me a great deal of confidence. I feel I would want a Dr that had 2AA 3BBB but PASSED a Scottish Uni course than someone from a country that has had major doubts raised about the standards and ethics of the majority of its Universities. (hope this is not sounding to BNP that is not the intention) I think this is wrong. We are stopping the development of our young adults. Our Dux pupil was also told that she did not have the academic standards to study at St Andrews (science subject) This is a joke. Very bright pleasant girl (all A band 1 passes), wanted to go to St Andrews because of family links. Scottish universities are making less places available to Scottish applicants. I understand the financial argument but if our Scottish Government really carried about our youth and future it would finance our children properly.
