When you have a POTUS who is an habitual liar and a PM of the UK who distorts the truth at every opportunity then the students are simply applying the same creative logic to their possible examination results

What on earth has broken the British Education system?

Infantilizing the population hasn't helped either.

Forty years ago, only 20% of pupils were good enough to be entered for O levels. Now 50% of them are supposed to be good enough for degrees. That's one degree in one subject, rather than the ten or eleven wildly differing subjects pupils took at O level.

Put another way, the modern adult of 21 is simply plain uneducated compared to the 16-year-old child of 1980.

I took a degree in German at Sussex in 1979-83. The university had a decent school of European Studies, but nothing special. I had to spend the third year of the course teaching English in a W German Gymnasium, while writing a 10,000-word dissertation, in German, on a subject of my choosing.

Current students doing German degrees at Oxford now spend their year abroad doing anything they fancy, including nothing at all if that's what they want. There's no teaching to do, no studying, no essays, nothing at all. And that's at Oxford!

Oxford University students who feel the 'traumatic effect of the brutality' of George Floyd's death made them do worse in exams can apply for mitigating circumstances considerations.

The announcement by vice-Chancellor professor Louise Richardson followed pressure from campaigners at the university who claim the horrific video of Floyd's last moments had a lasting impact on black students.

If they need a leg up give it to them you raycists. Positive discrimination is now encouraged since someone-a genius- swapped 'discrimination' for 'action'.

How geordie got from the correct observation that "British universities are pathetic leftwing institutions pandering to snowflakes" to Trump bashing .. Jesus. I mean that's a new low.

Surely there is a worthless mature degree (if what they churn out these days can really be called that) in "obsessive hate studies" he could be doing.

Oxford is of course the once respected university with the "Rhodes must fall" nonsense.

How do they even know he is racist. Have they even met him? Devil

It's the current generation of highly sensitive undergraduates we're talking about here. Not the older post-graduates, who are the ones who have done something of value.

That's the whole point.

There a huge difference between research by postgrads/associates/university employees in an actual proper dept and the thousands wasting money on worthless pieces of paper proclaiming undergraduate degrees in "gender and postmodern intersectional studies" in the various joke departments.

I see I triggered someone. I should maybe have to put up a trigger warning before I call out obvious "Trump Derangent Syndrome"?

Why anyone should feel the need to defend the subject of this thread by attacking other people is ridiciculous.

True

When you have people lying on a daily basis on national TV, getting caught out in the lie and then just lying some more, ALL WITHOUT consequences

What the fack do you expect from the rest of society? We live in a time where people are just lying narcists

"I'm depressed we got knocked out of the world cup. Can I have a better degree?"
"I'm really upset Shiela Ramsgate got called bad names in Hollyoaks. Can I resit my exams, but a bit easier?".
