    As a Brit these make no sense to me. I guess that they are
    grades at college? But are they exam marks? Where I come
    from (at least in the era that I graduated) only the one in a million
    student consistently exceeds 80%, 65-70% would be more
    normal for a first and it would be rare for an employer to restrict
    his choice to only those who get a first.

  5. I suspect he means the OP.

    If that system is churning out engineers with 80%+ averages, then I'd
    suspect the cause is an inadequate standard of assessment rather than
    exceptional engineers.

    Besides, companies with such elitist attitudes are generally run by a
    bunch of w**kers who stand around all day telling each other how
    intelligent they are. I recall back at uni one company that flatly
    refused to interview anyone but the top few students for their 3rd-year
    industrial experience. Of course the few naive students who were chosen
    jumped at the chance, thinking they were one of a lucky few, and ended
    up doing crap work for less pay than most of the other students that year.

    It takes a good academic to get good marks. It takes a good engineer to
    design reliable, cost-effective products in good time. It takes a gifted
    musician to be able to perform in world-class symphony orchestras. Get
    my point?

    #define FOAM_AT MOUTH

    We live in degenerate times. I'm currently working with a 4.0 GPA,
    which is to say I'm scoring at least 95% in my coursework (in fact, I
    know I scored 100% on at least one subject last semester, and will do
    so again in the calculus subject I'm taking at the moment).

    Of course, the first time around I did all this stuff, it was forbidden
    to have calculators in the exam, and the mere idea of allowing in
    calculators that do graphs, arithmetic derivatives and allow the
    storage of text would have caused heart attacks. Also, the material
    they call "college level" here in the US today was mandatory learning
    in high school for math/science stream students on the other side of
    the world sixteen years ago. I can't work out whether this is due to
    the relocation in time or in space but I suspect mostly time...

    The assessment methods in some subjects these days are quite
    "entertaining". Of course, it also depends on what institution you're
    at - I'm at a mediocre (but still incredibly expensive) private college
    chosen for geographic convenience. There are much worse than my
    college.

    The sheer cost of tertiary education in the US has to be seen to be
    believed. You've basically got three tiers:

    * Public institutions - about $5,000 per year
    * Midrange private institutions - $21,000 per year
    * High-end private institutions - $40,000 per year

    I'm not sure _exactly_ how it is calculated, but you get a 4.0 score
    for a subject if you get more than {x}%, where x is 95 I believe. The
    GPA (grade point average) for a semester is the mean of the scores for
    all subjects taken in that semester. The QGPA (cumulative) is the mean
    of all scores during your academic history, excluding unscored subjects
    [this often excludes transfer credits].
    I bet that's for something close to top-tier education though, correct?

    In the UK I don't think we have anything similar.

    No. Standard middle of the road university. Graphics student.

    Most UK graduates now finish a 3 year degree with 30 to 50 USD of
    debts.

    Basic tuition fees and accommodation is upwards of 7K USD per year and
    that is without food, books material etc. The problem is that in most UK
    cities there are lots of students and few jobs for students so it is
    difficult to find any other income.

    It was alien to me also. However in the US it is apparently SOP to
    quote your GPA (if it's not something that ought to remain secret :))
    alongside your degree in a resume.

    It's a nice simple number, making it nice and simple to make nice
    simple comparisons between two people with degree X. Like most nice
    simple numbers it is virtually meaningless.
    Damn. Out of control.
    I'm very stupid for not finishing school in Australia... Right up to
    1990, the top public schools were free (to citizens). The year I
    started, 1991, they started charging fees. But it was possible for
    citizens to take a deferred payment option which was essentially zero
    money up front, and you start getting an extra tax deduction when your
    income goes above some specific level. The interesting thing is, if you
    stop paying Australian taxes, that debt effectively disappears (unless
    and until you start paying Aus taxes again). I was amazed when I called
    the Australian Taxation Office and they told me this.
    Tuition _alone_ is $5K minimum in the US for a bottom-tier public
    college. There is almost no grayscale between that and the midrange
    places (like the one I'm at). No way I could afford it myself,
    fortunately my employer reimburses tuition and books 100%.

    And, naturally, math, science, engineering and economics/accounting
    subjects are more expensive than arts.

    Living on campus is incredibly expensive too, plus it pulls in all
    sorts of extra costs like mandatory health insurance.

  13. I remember one manager at IBM who would toss resumes from
    people with GPAs above 3.8 or so. He claimed that all of the
    4.0 students he hired turned out to be completely useless in
    the real world.

    When I was at Oxford (about 12 years ago), there was certainly no system
    like that, although a standard bachelor's honours degree is broken into
    different classes (first class, 2.1, 2.2, or third class), or a plain
    "pass" degree, so I suppose that takes something of the place of the
    GPA. Determining the class is a bit more obscure - the joke at Oxford
    was that the examiners took everything into account when deciding your
    class, sometimes they even looked at your exam results.
    Yes, but that covers living expenses and everything else, not just
    tuition fees - I think the $5,000, $21,000 and $40,000 figures quoted
    were just for tuition fees. You probably have double that for living
    expenses matching the average student at these universities.
    Do you still get government grants for tuition fees in the UK? When I
    was at uni, the state paid tuition fees for your first degree, and you
    could get a reasonable living expenses grant too (depending on how well
    off your parents were), but grants were being phased out in favour of
    student loans (in the sense that the state "favoured" them, rather than
    the students).

    The loans have to be paid back and do attract interest.

  17. In the old days, when I was a student, all tuition fees were paid by the
    government (for UK citizens) and a means-tested grant for living expenses.
    With Cambridge having 15K students for a local population of 100K it wasn't
    very practical to get a job there. In my case I had a full grant since I had
    five siblings and my dad was a lowly factory worker.

    Those days are gone. Now, if you or your family has no money, or you're not
    willing to get into big debt, then you don't go to Uni however bright you
    are. That's how it would have been with me. I was always brought up to live
    within my means and would never of dreamed of borrowing. As it was three of
    the six went to Uni - one PhD, one Masters.

    Although, in the old days when I too went to University, only something like
    5% of the population went through higher education. Now the Government
    sees fit to push 50% of the population into it, it represents an
    unsustainable burden on the UK taxpayer. This is particularly the case
    when many of the courses that are offered are of little or no real
    benefit to anyone including the student, and provide no realistic return
    on investment from a national economic point of view. While I would
    be perfectly willing to pay with my taxes for good quality higher
    education in science, engineering and the arts, I am was less willing
    to do so for the plethora of modern courses ranging from media studies
    to pet grooming (I kid you not).


    While it is a pity that students don't have it as easy as we did, I
    can't find it in me to wish the funding arrangements were different.
    A university course should prepare you for a more financially rewarding
    career (amongst other things, of course) and those with the savvy to
    understand that a bit of debt is an investment to a more rewarding
    career are bound to get on with it and do well. Those that don't
    understand that perhaps ought not to be in higher education in the
    first place.

    Of course, those views aren't popular, and to be fair individual
    students can't decide that they'll be a pet groomer without doing
    the course because if every other pet groomer does it they're not
    going to get the jobs.

    Actually it doesn't the government pays very little to students these
    days. I will bet that the burden on the tax payer is no worse now than
    10 years ago.
    I agree. Whilst there are many real new subjects some of the degrees
    seem very pointless.
    Media studies maybe... I think in that the whole industry has completely
    changed in 60 years. Television was hardly here, colour in a book was
    limited to one or two plates and not practical in magazines. Lead times
    for magazines were 6 weeks now they are 6 days. Then the is the
    Internet, cable, flat screens instead of notice boards. It is a
    completely new world.

    There are some new subjects that do merit a degree but pet grooming!!!!
    that is a sub o-level trade. there are a lot of other new courses that
    shoudl not have seen the light of day.
    I can, some 30% of good students drop out of university due to financial
    problems. One debt collection company says 50% of the people on it's
    books are ex- students.

    The level of debt new students get is crippling. I it is like having a
    mortgage without the house. Moreover it tends to kill the spirit and
    depress them.

    Worse still many with any get up and go are doing just that.... they are
    going abroad to get out of paying back the student loans which usually
    leaves them with 5-10K debts.
    Which is one of the reasons why there are a lot fewer engineering
    students. Over 20% down.
    A bit of debt is at the moment 15-20K for most students.....
