Colleges hit by grade inflation row as EVERYONE gets a top degree on dozens of university courses
- More than 50 university courses across UK awarded students a First or 2:1
- Number achieving 2:1 or above has leapt over five years at some institutions
- Critics say grades have been pushed up as a ‘marketing ploy’
- Universities said the rises reflected improvements in A-level grades
Top degrees have been awarded to every single student on dozens of British degree courses, a Mail on Sunday investigation into ‘rampant’ grade inflation has found.
On more than 50 courses at universities across the country, in subjects ranging from engineering to English, 100 per cent of students were awarded a First or a 2:1.
At some institutions, the proportion of students achieving at least a 2:1 – a key requirement for many employers – has leapt over the past five years.
