Wow, all change
"Traditional degree marks will become obsolete and a new 13-point system will be introduced because too many students are receiving firsts and 2:1s, the universities minister has announced.
Jo Johnson said the current system of marking university students, which was developed in 1918, is “no longer capable” of giving employers the information they need.
He said that a new 13-point grading system, modelled on those used in America and Denmark, will now be introduced alongside the current honours to allow businesses to differentiate between the thousands of graduates getting high grades."
"The new framework, which all universities will be expected to sign-up to by 2020, could also include a league table measuring quality of teaching and the amount that graduates go on to earn."#education #universities #highereducation
