Student reports to show work and play

Universities [in the UK] are going to provide a much more detailed account of students' achievements, in changes expected to be adopted by most universities.

As well as degree grades, there will be individual marks and details of non-academic activity, such as sports.

These will be known as Higher Education Achievement Report (Hears).

Sir Robert Burgess, leading the project, said it would move beyond the "damaging obsession with 'first' and 'upper second' degree classifications".

This record will be held by the university in electronic form, which will provide employers with detailed information about students' achievements.

It can include marks from individual papers and course modules - and will provide a record of participation in other areas, such as sports, music, clubs and societies.

These will be included alongside the traditional degree classifications.
