Admitting Defeat

What a shame. Oxford colleges may be losing their ability to choose their students.

Now, you may have views about underlying reasons for poor admissions from state schools (although bearing in mind the dyed-in-the-wool liberal consensus in academia I must confess I'm amazed that anyone could suggest that they suddenly during admissions week change from Guardian-reading sandals-wearers to proponents of the old school tie). I simply don't think that changing a system that's worked pretty well for 800 years is the right way to go about solving this problem.

How about fixing state secondary education first?
