I find it hard to disagree with this letter in today's paper: End the university guessing game Richard Garner’s exposé “The great university admissions charade (4 February), comes as no surprise. This hugely expensive casino serves universities and students badly. That teachers should be obliged to give predicted grades after what is, in effect, no more three-fifths of the course can, despite their best efforts, be neither trustworthy nor reliable. It is hard to imagine a more stupid system than one where students apply to university before their results are known. The universities claim that to change would mean an adjustment of their term dates. So what? The existing arrangements are a huge waste of time, talent and resources. The Government needs to knock heads together. David McKaigue http://www.independent.co.uk/voices...overnment-will-breed-extremists-a6859686.html Thoughts?
