Differences in degree outcomes: Key findings

This new study looks at the outcomes of the cohort of English-domiciled A-level students who entered full-time degree courses in 2007-08. It examines the extent to which a student's background affects their chance of obtaining an upper second or first class degree in higher education. The report updates and extends previous HEFCE research, which analysed the cohort of 1997-98 entrants. 

The report examines the achievements of 130,000 students from universities and colleges across England up to August 2011 - the largest student group ever examined in this type of research. It reveals the significant effect of factors such as ethnicity, gender, disadvantage and school type on the chances of students obtaining an upper second or first class degree.
