Brief update on British university grade inflation

An official British report has found that grades at more than 80% of universities have inflated beyond a level attributable to rising standards. Last year, 18% of students who got CCD or below at A level graduated with a first; 50% of students at Surrey University got a first; at Bristol, UCL and Durham, 2:2 and third-class degrees were given to fewer than 10% of students.

  1. As a recent graduate I think this is horrendous. Grade inflation devalues the hard work put into getting a good degree. We put a stop to grade inflation in school exams. The government should do the same with higher education.
