BBC News: Staff:
Universities are turning to entrance exams because they can no longer rely on A-level results amid a “tsunami” of top grades, reports the Daily Telegraph. The paper has been speaking to university officials as a report on exam grade inflation warns it could be higher this year while teachers continue to determine results because of the pandemic.
The Guardian says the government has been funding hundreds of extra university places on medical and dental courses in England as “rampant grade inflation” has led to unexpectedly high numbers of students qualifying for places.
Metro focuses on the UK holidaymakers hit by the latest travel rule changes, which saw Mexico added to the red list. Thousands were left scrambling to leave the country to avoid having to quarantine in a hotel on their return, it reports. Metro’s main picture is of footballer Jack Grealish following his record breaking £100m move to Manchester City.
The Daily Mail accuses the UK’s climate tsar of hypocrisy, saying he flew to at least 30 countries as he prepared for the COP26 environment summit in November. The Mail also says Alok Sharma has visited six countries on the travel red list, but has been given a ministerial exemption from having to quarantine each time.
“Johnson is the pits”, says the headline in the Daily Mirror as it reports the prime minister’s assertion that Margaret Thatcher gave the UK an “early start” in the move away from coal-fired power by shutting coal mines in the 1980s. Boris Johnson has been “blasted” by communities affected by the former PM’s policy, it says.
The Financial Times reports comments from the Bank of England on its efforts to keep inflation under control. In a change of stance, the bank indicated that “some modest tightening of monetary policy” is likely over the next two years, including discussions over raising interest rates, says the paper.
The Daily Express says the Bank of England’s warning on inflation was a “hammer blow” for savers who stand to see their nest eggs shrink even more after years of low interest rates.
The Sun says the owner of an alpaca set to be put down after testing positive for bovine TB is vowing to “take a bullet” to save him from the officials’ action.
And finally, the Daily Star has a dig at “po-faced bosses” who ban staff from sharing “cheeky jokes” with colleagues.
The Times highlights plans for a new marketing campaign encouraging the under-30s in England to get their coronavirus vaccine.
It says adverts on Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok will try to convince them that “they won’t be able to enjoy themselves fully without their jabs” – as they’ll need proof they’ve had them to enter nightclubs from the autumn.
The i says the “big push” comes amid “waning enthusiasm” for vaccination among younger age groups, with plans to deploy social media influencers to get the word out.
PA Media: The Independent website says an estimated 34,000 children in the UK are now living with long Covid – and suffering from persistent fatigue and shortness of breath.
One expert, Dr Elaine Maxwell, argues that the figures from the Office for National Statistics challenge the assumption that the condition is rare in youngsters.
Elsewhere, the Daily Telegraph reports that more of the country’s top universities have started setting their own entrance tests because they can no longer rely on A-levels to pick out the best students.
For a second year, exams have been replaced by teacher assessment due to the pandemic – and the paper says some experts believe that grade inflation may be a bigger issue this summer than it was in 2020.
Results are out in England, Wales and Northern Ireland next Tuesday.
“ The height of hypocrisy” is how the Daily Mail describes the recent movements of Alok Sharma, who is organising November’s international climate change conference in Glasgow: The paper says he has flown to at least 30 countries in the past seven months – six of them on the travel “red list” – without quarantining in a hotel on his return because of a ministerial exemption.
Reuters: The Liberal Democrats tell the Mail it is more evidence that the government ignores the rules it expects the public to follow, while the Green Party peer, Jenny Jones, suggests it’s “excessive” for Mr Sharma to take so many flights when his job is to promote eco-friendly policies: The government says it will offset all carbon emissions associated with the #COP26 summit, insisting it is important for Mr Sharma to meet world leaders face-to-face before the conference.
Meanwhile, there is criticism of the prime minister’s suggestion that Margaret Thatcher’s decision to close coal mines in the 1980s boosted the UK’s climate ambitions. “Johnson Is The Pits” is the Daily Mirror’s headline, while the Guardian says the comments were “denounced as unbelievably crass”.
The Times adds that they irritated some of Mr Johnson’s own MPs “who won seats in areas where the Conservatives have only just recovered from the stigma of Thatcherism”.And several papers have an update on Geronimo the alpaca – who could be put down as early as this weekend after twice testing positive for bovine tuberculosis.
The Sun says Environment Secretary George Eustice is refusing to overrule a warrant ordering the animal’s destruction – even though Geronimo’s owner, Helen Macdonald, insists he’s fit and healthy. More than 75,000 people have signed an online petition to save him – and the Daily Express says celebrities including Joanna Lumley have joined the campaign. “Please spare Geronimo”, she pleads – “as there is real doubt hanging over this death sentence”
