ELITISM IN UNIVERSITIES IS REFLECTIVE OF THE WIDENING WEALTH GAP IN THE UK

In 2016, the University of Oxford offered 59.2 per cent of its places to pupils from state schools, its highest yet. Whilst this makes up the majority of the university, it does not sound so laudable when you realise that only 18 per cent of children over the age of 16 are educated at private schools (seven per cent of children of all ages).
