Ahead of A-Level results day tomorrow million+ has encouraged students to consider all opportunities when selecting their future place of study and reaffirms that university should be accessible for all.
Pam Tatlow, Chief Executive of the university think-tank million+ said:
“Government changes to A-levels may mean that results are less predictable than in the past and students should explore all options available.
“Modern universities offer high quality courses and teaching as well as professionally and technically focused degrees which provide pathways into employment and work experience.
“A-levels are not the only story. The majority of students enter university with a vocational qualification and a third of students start a university course when they are over 21. Anyone considering higher education should bear in mind that it is not too late to apply to start a course in the autumn.”
