A-LEVELS: Oxford denies bias
10:30am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
Figures from Oxford University indicate children from private schools with the highest grades are more likely to be offered places at Oxford than state-educated pupils with the same grades.
Statistics from 2010 to 2012 showed those with three A* grades or more at A-Level were nine per cent more likely to be offered places than their state-educated counterparts. A spokesman said places were not based on final A-Level results.
Admission related purely to aptitude and potential for the chosen course, without regard to school type.
