Unconditional Offers

Commenting on the BBC article on entrance requirements it looks as if a third of Aberystwyth’s offers are unconditional and do not depend on having any A levels. This is done in order to attract students from anywhere, never mind the quality, and for no reason other than money. There are three D’s offers, and eighty percent of A level students get three D’s. These offers are made irrespective of any ability in the Welsh language. The percentage of firsts is up to 27% at some universities, in my time it was 5%. The firsts were the elite performers, and as the top first I was awarded the Dr. Samuel Williams studentship. So the quality of education at Aberystwyth has collapsed completely. The h and g indices of lavishly paid Vice Chancellors are far lower than mine (h = 50, g = 100, plus scientometrics showing astounding international interest in my work). I am also a fluent Welsh speaker and poet in both languages. The best thing to do with the place is to shut it down for five years for downsizing and retraining, sell off surplus buildings, and reduce the student population so that every student is from Wales and fully bilingual. I think that Cardiff is making about seven thousand people redundant, and Trinity St. David’s, so called, is in heavy debt. These monstrous colonial impositions seem to be disintegrating. They are not even aware of the quality of thought of Welsh speakers within Wales. The National Library of Wales seems to be debt ridden because of lavish pensions. In Autobiography Volume Two the extent of the corruption at Aberystwyth was revealed. Most staff were appointed in smoke filled rooms, they remained there for forty of fifty years, and produced abysmally low h and g indices compared with mine (“Analysis of Impact” document on www.aias.us) . I was locked out for revealing the corruption. There was one report which revealed that the Vice Chancellor at Bangor spent lavishly on his own accommodation. The reason for this chronic corruption is that there is no mechanism for shutting down these monstrosities. In the sixties there were no fees, they were paid by local government, and there were small student grants. This is also described in autobiography volume two. I was subjected to considerable abuse at Aberystwyth, Bangor and Swansea (acute verbal abuse, deprivation of laboratory space, deprivation of office space and breach of contract). This is well known internationally through my autobiography. My appointment as Civil List Pensioner is an inherent condemnation of all the abuse and so on.
