Exam results

Recommended Posts

More Scottish pupils than ever will be going to University this year.
'A record number of Scottish pupils have gained a university place on exam results day.

University admissions body Ucas said more than 28,700 pupils gained places, 400 more than last year.

The figure included a 13% increase in placed applicants from Scotland's most deprived communities.'

On BBC website:
"Exam passes are high by historic standards, more youngsters are staying on at school and going to college or university.

Is this a good thing in itself? Or is the education system simply having to adapt to the fact that in the modern world there are fewer good jobs for young people, and that unskilled jobs are disappearing?'

Surely it's a good thing that there has been a 13% increase in pupils from deprived communities going on to Higher Education?
