Poorer students 'under-applying' to universities

Posted in: Uncategorised

Interesting snippet in The Guardian on UCL research which shows that students from poorer backgrounds are much more likely that others to apply to universities and courses which require less than their 6th form achievement. This is 'under-applying' .This is reversed for better-off students, who have a similar tendency to over-apply. It doesn't seem to be simply down to poorer students applying more locally. Aspirations? Following friends?
