Universities are bringing in entrance exams because they cannot rely on A-levels to find the brightest students.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, for the second year running teachers will give students predicted grades.
It’s thought the grades could be higher than those given in 2020.
It’s feared too many students are receiving top marks which do not reflect their actual ability.
Now, some leading universities have brought in their own entrance exams.
Experts say the trend could continue as admission tutors can no longer rely on teacher’s grades alone.
