Sorry couldn't see how to post a new discussion in this section!
What I have read so far is very interesting. I was surprised how many students didn't have an A- or A-Levels, as these are required to enter University. I think one of the good points about the Open University is that it is open to anyone who has missed out or wants to study for a degree.
Have to admit not being surprised as I was already aware of these facts. But the facts to make me feel proud to be part of the OU family. I'm dyslexic, without the OU I would never been able to prove that I was not lazy or a slow learner. A phrase most dyslectics will have heard said about them.
