Study claims state pupils do better at university

March 28, 2014 10:01 am

Research by the Higher Education Funding Council for England has shown students from state schools obtain better degrees than private pupils who achieved the same A-level grades. The study tracked 130,000 students beginning degrees in 2007, looking at schooling, background and ethnicity .It found on some measures state pupils were significantly more likely to get a 2:1 than their private school peers. The findings have prompted calls for universities to introduce ‘contextual admissions.’
