 EducationGuardian.co.uk | higher news | Loss and retention
For the past three years the higher education funding councils have used a complex projection method to compare institutions, giving the chances of graduating for a student starting in a given year.
For a few institutions the chances of dropping out are alarmingly high - at the University of North London less than half the intake is expected to graduate, with 45% leaving with no qualification or a transfer to another institution.
In many cases it is the institutions taking risks in student recruitment by admitting mature students and those without traditional A-levels or Highers that inevitably have the highest drop-out rates.

 Education | Fall in student drop-out rates
At 14% for 2002/03, compared with 16% two years earlier, the downward trend was welcomed by the higher education minister, Kim Howells, but is being treated cautiously in the sector because of changes to the way the figures are compiled compared to previous years.
Heads of new universities argue their institutions are more willing to take risks with students from poor families, mature students and those without traditional qualifications, and complain bitterly that they are penalised for widening access as the government demands.

My own experience of being educated was fairly plain sailing up until the age of 12 or 13 years of age when I was in the first year of secondary school.
I wanted to enter higher education as I thought that my first stab at education was not particularly fruitful and that I had just spent four years out of civilian society and education was a good place to start my new life.
We have of course to look at the sources of this marginalisation though, as I have experienced in TS conferences it is occasionally the very people themselves who see themselves as disabled because of TS, and when I have challenged this construction, my suggestions have been met with a considerable measure of resistance.
