LGA'S MEASURES TO ABOLISH CLEARING

Allowing students to defer university applications until they know their grades would abolish the need for the clearing process, according to the Local Government Association.

Students who did not achieve the grades on which offers of university places were based must use their actual grades to bid for places through the clearing process.

Chris Price, chair of the commission on the organisation of the school year set up by the LGA, has written to chief executive of Universities UK Baroness Warwick to say the introduction of post qualification application would eliminate the need for predicted grades.

The commission's recommendations for a standard six-term year would allow earlier examinations under this system.
