Universities must give more top degrees to black students, under new proposals by regulator

'Universities could be punished unless they give a higher proportion of top degrees to black students, under new proposals drawn up by the regulator. '

'Instead, the new regulator, which came into force earlier this year, plans to set a series of national targets that all universities will be expected to meet. '

'There has been an almost 50 per cent increase in the number of black and ethnic minority students in England between 2007 and 2016.78 per cent of white students graduated last year with a first class of upper second class degree, compared to just 53 per cent of black students. '

'If institutions fail to comply with the regulator’s new “tougher” national targets for increasing the number of disadvantaged students, they could be penalised through a fine or even de-registered. '

'The Office for Students (OfS) has announced plans to overhaul its guidelines for boosting diversity in higher education, in what it says is the “biggest shake up” since 2004. '

They will just give degrees to sub 80 IQ blacks to avoid getting a fine.
