Readers’ comments: Universities with no challenge


In response to Hugh Openshaw: Don’t worry about A-level grades – universities don’t

What fun. What that means is, in a few years’ time, doctors who can’t operate or diagnose. Engineers and architects who can’t build or plan, teachers who can’t teach (though there’s a fair few of them around already) and electricians who don’t know a faulty wire from a faulty pen.

If universities and government want this country to fall apart, they’re going the right way about it. I think the rest of us should probably up roots when this lot leave university and go somewhere where the education standards are still tough.

Most people are pretty dim. It would be astonishing if 1 in 10 people stopped in the street and asked a series of grown-up questions would be able to answer them. Yet the establishment seems to think a full half of the population should go to university. If this is to be achieved, then clearly the entry standards have to be drastically lowered. A joke of course, albeit not remotely funny.
