AUN! News:A Sad Day

Oxford University has given into Blair Government over admissions. No longer will each college admit its own students. Now students will be admitted centrally and distributed among the colleges by the university. The independence of the colleges has added much to the diversity of the University as I have seen it (granted a limited experience). This will now be wiped away in the name of egalitarianism. Sickening! The story is here.

"But the proposals would keep admissions in the hands of current subject tutors and would not alter the autonomy of colleges" said Sir Tim, President of Corpus Christi College.

The idea is to keep the admission system consistent, but the people who choose future students will not change. You got the wrong end of the stick here.

Thanks for the feedback, the APF story I read said that it was the other way. Thanks again
