My predicted grades were way off. It’s time to get real about A-levels | Grace Holliday

the guardian - Wed, 20/06/2018 - 17:21
Universities must ditch the crystal ball – as it stands, the admissions process is failing disadvantaged students

Hunched over on dirty stairs, surrounded by other students either crying or squealing, I struggled to open the envelope because my hands were shaking so much. The page inside listed grades of A, A and B. It took me several long, confused seconds to process that these were my A-level results. Just two years earlier, I’d been told me to expect – and apply to university on the basis of getting – CCD.

The University and College Union (UCU) has this week called for an end to university applications being based on predicted grades. Research by UCL’s Institute of Education back in 2016 found that over three years, 84% of predictions for three A-levels or equivalent had been inaccurate.

What happens when ordinary people learn economics? | Aditya Chakrabortty

the guardian - Wed, 20/06/2018 - 08:00

In Manchester, groundbreaking economics courses are giving locals the means to challenge some of society’s received wisdom – for free.
• Listen to Aditya Chakrabortty talking about game-changing economic models on The Alternatives podcast

In a makeshift classroom, nine lay people are battling some of the greatest economists of all time – and they appear to be winning. Just watch what happens to David Ricardo, the 18th-century father of our free-trade system. In best BBC voice, one of the group reads out Ricardo’s words: “Economics studies how the produce of the Earth is distributed.”
