Newspaper Links 3: No Point Working
Apparently (some) university courses that involve more work - measured in (contact and independent study) hours - give fewer students (in % terms) 2.is or 1sts. The message is perhaps why do 38 hours a week in Oxford for a 2.i when you could do 25 hours elsewhere, and maybe even get a First?
I'm particularly interested - predictably - that some mainstream media have labelled these findings a 'lottery'. This allegation was actually made in last week's Cherwell and in The Telegraph.
