British natives are more likely to get university offers than other ethnicities, according to The Guardian. A new report found that twelve of the 14 minority groups in the study were less likely to receive university offers compared with white Britons.
The study, conducted to take a look at the question of ethnic differences in universities in the UK determined that applications from 12 of the 14 minority groups included in the analysis were significantly less likely to result in an offer.
In terms of academic and social characteristic factors, the study found the disadvantage was greatest with immigrants from Pakistan. Those received on average seven additional rejections for every 100 applications.
