A piece by Chris McGovern published today by TCW. An extract:
The University of Manchester has already ditched the traditional requirement for chemistry A-Level for those seeking to study medicine. Psychology A-Level will do instead. [J4MB: 90%+ of those studying Psychology at A-Level, and at degree level are female.] The head of its medical school admissions told the Sunday Times that more liberal entry requirements are now the order of the day in universities. Other universities plan to follow Manchester’s lead.
Much the same is true of engineering degree courses. A-Level physics, the bedrock on which much study for an engineering degree is built, is no longer to be regarded as necessary. Nor should it be, as Bristol University has made clear. A central aim of recruitment to its main engineering degree courses is to ‘increase the diversity of students’. [J4MB: You can be sure that the central aim of recruitment to its main PSYCHOLOGY courses is not to increase the gender diversity of students.] University College London and the University of Southampton are pursuing a similar policy. Both offer engineering courses that do not require physics A-Level.
Nobody should be in any doubt that these changes are being made for one reason only, to increase the proportion of students in these disciplines, who are female. 70 per cent of medical students in the UK are women today, and the consequences for the NHS – and patients – will be dire, as they have been since the feminisation of the medical profession started in the 1970s.
