According to this Beeb News story, the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) says "The government's target to get 50% of under-30s into higher education has "driven down standards and devalued the currency of a degree and damaged the quality of the university experience... The focus must shift back to quality rather than quantity..."

Told you so.

Hopefully common-sense will prevail. Time will tell.

    I graduated way back in 74 thank God. Financially it wasn't particularly easy even then, but I did get the maximum grant and I managed ok (but I was basically skint for a long while after graduation until my earnings went up a bit). A degree was indeed a distinction in those days.
