Until 2013, the BBB estimates obtained by A-level were considered admissible. Recent changes in the education system in Britain can write off good horoshists from the accounts. In 2013, restrictions were lifted on the reception of honors students in higher education institutions of the country. Today the universities of England are filled with first-year students with a high level of basic academic training. That is, those who make less effort onpre-university courses , there is little chance of entering the university .
Under the new rules, universities can accept an unlimited number of students with at least one A grade score for the bachelor's degree. Last year, a record number of applicants of this category (401540 people) was enrolled in the universities of Britain. For example, in the University of Exeterenrolled 600 students above the norm. Of these, more than half have AAA ratings.
As for the B category points, they, according to British experts in the field of education, are unfairly classified as insufficient. In addition, the abolition of restrictions on the admission of students who received an ABB exam is incomplete. Applicants of this category can count no more than 12,000 places in universities. This is about a third of the total. Accordingly, 2/3 remains for all others.
Changes in the education system have led to a sharp decrease in the number of applicants who choose universities through the system of clearing. This is due to the fact that many students have accepted offers from universities in a timely manner. As for the most prestigious universities in the country, they even "left the clearing". 6 Universities of the Russell Group do not participate in the system, because they have already gained the norm of students. A few more reduced the number of clearing places 3 times (for example, Manchester University from 300 to 100). Clearing allows universities to reduce the shortage in certain faculties. In Manchester, the program primarily affects language professions.
In general, last year, according to the system of clearing in the universities of England received only 50,000 students. And this indicator tends to decrease.
