Uni shake-up plans

Burton Mail - - National -

STU­DENTS should ap­ply for univer­sity after they get their A-level re­sults, in a ma­jor shake-up pro­posed by univer­sity and col­lege staff.

The Univer­sity and Col­lege Union (UCU) says the move will elim­i­nate unconditional of­fers and a “chaotic” clear­ing process, and cour­ses would start in Novem­ber.

Ac­cord­ing to the UCU, no other coun­tries use grade pre­dic­tions to award univer­sity places.
