Lib Dems nationally and locally are claiming that with 42% of A-Level grades predicted ending up lower when the results were announced last week it is clear that something has gone wrong.
Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Candidate Andy Corkhill today called on Vice-Principals at the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University and Edge Hill University, to honour the places that were offered to students.
“Apart from being anything but fair, this way of giving grades is yet another example of the Conservatives taking all the humanity out of a very human thing”.
“Across the region there are horror stories regarding lost places at universities, across the academic spectrum. This algorithm has robbed many students of the chance to study for their dream job, better themselves and experience university.”
