UK universities may adopt US-styled GPA system

The Times Higher has the story here and it may surprise to some although a topic of many high table conversations in recent years. The following universities are reported to be considering a switch from degree classifications to the US-styled GPA system: Birmingham, LSE, Nottingham, Sheffield, Warwick, UCL, and York.

It will be interesting to see if these plans move ahead -- and, if they do, if this marks the beginning of the end for the degree classification system.
