Worcester College have announced in an online statement that they will be accepting all students that they made offers to this year, regardless of the results that they were awarded in their A levels.

This comes after the Guardian reported that 39.1% of results were “downgraded” by a grade from the predicted results given by teachers at schools. 

In their statement, Worcester College stated that this year they have decided to take their “most diverse cohort ever,” and have made the decision in light of the uncertainties in this year’s results.

As reported recently in Cherwell, a university-wide decision has also been made to defer entry to 2021 for those who successfully meet their offer through the appeal process once maximum capacity has been reached for this year’s intake.

  1. It is shocking that almost 40% of students have been downgraded, and though it is likely that many teachers generally predicted the students to do better that what they would have done otherwise, this downgrading system specifically hinders those from low income backgrounds.
