Following a FOI (Freedom of Information Request) to the department of architecture at Dundee University, this the number of students who were failed at the end of their third year from 2005-2013.

In 2013, the minimum entrance requirements for the BA Arch (Architecture) course at Dundee are:


QualificationGrade
SQA HigherAABB/ABBBB
GCE A-LevelBBB/ABC (excluding General Studies)

In the last eight academic years at Dundee University least 70 young peoples lives have been shattered, all because their markers didn't like them or their designs.

For the same academic period (2005 - 2013) just 12 students of Economics failed third year. This subject was chosen as a comparison as it has the same minimum entrance requirements as architecture. Therefore, at the University of Dundee an architecture student is more than five times more likely to fail to be awarded a degree than a student of Economics.
