A university said students will not lose marks for language mistakes. It thinks asking students to have a high level of written English is unfair to ethnic minorities. It is also unfair to poorer students with lower grades. The university wants to make tests fairer. It wants to stop poorer students from dropping out.
Asking for well-written English is unfair to people with dyslexia. They have problems using letters and words. It is harder for them to write with no mistakes. The university also said it could stop overseas students from going to university. Another university said it is fairer to focus on students' ideas and not their spelling.
