Graduating from university is becoming more and more normalised nowadays. Not only is it beneficial, it also is vital. One willing to enter the professional world without any college degree, will most likely get rejected by most firms due to a total lack of credibility. Nevertheless, does a degree truly reflect an individual‘s capabilities ? In the UK, many university degrees are obtained through assessments such as home assignments ( ie. essays, projects, etc ) with barely any real physical live examination as they would do in high schools. Moreover, it has been reported that there is a growing number of students who, instead of completing their assignments on their own, pay someone else to complete the assignment on their behalf. Also, since the pandemic started, almost every university in the world operated with an “online exam“ format meaning students would sit the exams remotely with no real supervision as there would be in a physical exam.
