Sir: Your article on university entry requirements (10 June) quotes the chief executive of UCAS as saying: "Well, we know performance at A- level is a very poor predictor of performance at degree level." I have read elsewhere that interviewing is an equally unreliable predictor of future achievement. So can anyone tell me why our bastions of learning rely so heavily on just these two methods to select their chosen few?
