@ucu and @NEONHE have today published report supporting the proposals to move to a #PQA system for #UniAdmissions.

But are they right?…
I almost never disagree with Graeme Atherton on supporting disadvantaged students and @DrJoGrady is fantastic on so many things, but, on this, I think they're wrong...

...unless any shift to PQA is accompanied by a raft of changes & assurances that aren't currently planned.
I have two key issues with the report:
▶️what they think the problem is
▶️what they think the solution is

The problem to solve is NOT the use of predicted grades.
And, as a solution, PQA would only make the real problem worse.

@michelledonelan appearing before @CommonsEd this morning.

@halfon4harlowMP starts by asking about compensation for students for lost learning under Covid.

Minister confirms no blanket arrangements and pays tribute to unis and their staff who pulled out all the stops.
@michelledonelan @CommonsEd @halfon4harlowMP The next question's about antisemitic speaker David Miller being allowed a platform at Bristol Uni – a blind alley for Donelan. She can't condemn the uni and speaker, while maintaining her departmental line about freedom of speech. Her way out is basically to buck-pass to OfS.
@michelledonelan @CommonsEd @halfon4harlowMP Follow-up questions on antisemitism & adopting the IHRA definition and whether she should be intervening at Bristol & elsewhere.

She just can't win here because of govt’s agenda about freedom of speech in unis. This discussion is exposing the inherent illogic and inconsistency.
