He said: "From the perspective of fair access this could have the advantage of freeing up additional funded places, as well as being a component of the more flexible system of learner pathways - in the same way that fuller articulation between college courses and degrees would."This would lead, not only to an efficiency gain, but would also increase the number of students who could be funded and reduce the risk of displacement." Readers’ comments: You are personally liable for the content of any comments you upload to this website, so please act responsibly.and I can make them 10x MORE successful just by teaching them a few a simple persuasion secrets. Don't get me wrong – I'm not saying you can snap your fingers and money will magically fall into your lap.That's why I often say persuasion is the world's most valuable skill. Success happens in direct relation to your dedication. But what if you could get 10x better results with the same amount of time and effort you're already investing? Look: If you walked into my firm back in the 80's and managed to get yourself a job , there's a good chance I'd have turned you into a millionaire within 24 months. Each and every one of the first 1,000 brokers we hired became million dollar producers. But they didn't get rich simply because they were hard workers.We do not pre-moderate or monitor readers’ comments appearing on our websites, but we do post-moderate in response to complaints we receive or otherwise when a potential problem comes to our attention.You can make a complaint by using the ‘report this post’ link .And nearly every single one of them used this very same formula to make way too much money, way too fast, and way too easily. If you saw starring Leonardo Di Caprio (the blockbuster movie based on my life) or read one of my best-selling books then you know what I'm talking about. But you must take a vow to use these tactics at the highest ethical level, with the utmost integrity. And it's not because I stepped on the wrong side of the rules a few times. The reason I achieved such mind-blowing success is because I made myself an expert at one very specific skill: Listen, I've been a paper boy. In total, I've started over 30 companies from scratch and grew almost every single one of them into million-dollar businesses.So before we go any further, here is my simple warning: The skills I'm about to teach you can be used for good or evil. It made no difference what field I was in or what title I held.
The intervention is important because of current concerns there is too much overlap between the final year of school and the first year of a degree.
"In a minority of cases able students with Advanced Higher, and other evidence of academic maturity, might be able to enter university with some form of advanced standing.
"At present the numbers are tiny - only 1.4 per cent of S6 leavers with Advanced Highers are admitted straight into the second year - and there must be scope for increasing that number." READ MORE: Herald View: A case for studying the future role of Advanced Highers Sir Peter said the suggestion was controversial because it appeared to be a threat to the established four year degree in Scotland. A four-year undergraduate degree is the international standard, and three-year degrees are exceptional.
However, it is becoming increasingly common for college students studying higher level courses to enter university in either the second or third year.
Sir Peter said: "Some students may be coasting through S6, or not be sufficiently challenged in their first undergraduate year.
