This was news to me that the UK universities have come to the conclusion that our much loved degree classifications (1st, 2:i, 2:ii, 3rd etc) could be phased out and replaced, over time, by a system of "credits".

Press release from Leicester University which discusses the same.

Original report from the Burgess Committee which I cannot actually find the recommendation in due to the jargon it contains!

I understand that higher education is changing, but I'm not sure I understand the need to do away with something that is currently well understood. Anybody have any insights on this?

ETA: Found a few insights from the QAA website
