Crossing the streams: graduate earnings and grade inflation

Crossing the streams: graduate earnings and grade inflation | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it

On the one hand we have the government wringing its hands over the growth in first class degree awards. On the other, we see an appetite to tackle “low quality” courses that don’t lead to a salary premium later in life.

There’s been surprisingly little research into the intersection of these two issues – what, if anything, is the salary implication of a first rather than an upper (or lower) second?

Girls who study vocational GCSEs 'much less likely to do A-levels'

Girls who study vocational GCSEs 'much less likely to do A-levels' | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Teenage girls who study vocational GCSE subjects rather than traditional academic courses are "significantly" less likely to go on to do A levels, according to research. A new survey shows that young girls who studied an "applied" subject, such as health and social care, were less likely to stay on at A level and take the "facilitating" subjects, such as the sciences and maths, which are favoured by prestigious universities in the UK.
