In England you earn to learn: iLIVE
No country can afford that every citizen gets a university education.
England erected grammar schools. To enter these schools, every child of 11 undergoes intelligence tests. Those that do best are accepted. These children, if they work hard, are then candidates for universities. Bright but poor children can apply for bursaries.
Applications are done before the final exams and, based on the work done during the year, the university will send out application forms. When results are out, applicants register. No queues necessary.
