Uni shake-up plans

Manchester Evening News - - 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.
