Universities churn out record numbers of top class LLB students
It is just evening things up...
When I went to Bristol University, out of 175 law students, only 4 were expected to get 1sts, and about 40% were expected to get 2:1s (my brother was at Birmingham and in his year zero 1sts were awarded).
But in other faculties (Psychology I seemed to remember being a bad one), about half the students got firsts, and the rest got 2:1s even though you only needed three Cs at A-Level to get in!
It was about time they equalised the degree classes, so I am not too sorry about "grade inflation" for law degrees, even if it means my 2:1 looks shabbier by comparison.
