Universities admit students who are 'almost illiterate', lecturers warn 

Universities are admitting students who are “almost illiterate”, lecturers warn as they complain that dropping entry requirements has led to a generation of undergraduates who cannot read, write or speak proper English.

Almost half of academics (48 per cent) do not think that students are adequately prepared for university study, according to a Times Higher Education (THE) survey of over 1,000 academic staff.

A number of lecturers also felt that the National Student Survey (NSS) gave students “too much power”, with academic rigour suffering becoming a secondary consideration.
