Figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency show that in 2010 – the year the Government announced tuition fees would be tripled – 12.4 per cent of students at Bournemouth University and 11.6 per cent at Arts University Bournemouth were awarded firsts, however last year those figures had nearly doubled to 22.3 per cent and 20.2 per cent respectively.

A report by think tank Reform states that universities, competing with each other, have altered the way grades are calculated to increase the number of firsts.
