Title Study finds more evidence of state school ‘advantage’ in degrees Media name/outlet Times Higher Education Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 10/01/18 Description Further evidence of comprehensive school students’ “significant advantage” that makes it more likely that they get a good degree from a UK university compared with similar students from private schools is presented by a new study.
Analysis of the degrees achieved by nearly 9,000 graduates of one English university, which controlled for A-level grades, found that state school leavers were more likely to achieve a first or a 2:1 than their private school counterparts in seven out of the 11 entry qualification combinations considered.
