i really don’t know why you have to denigrate the subjects when the problem is people skipping through university as a privileged rite of passage. they don’t apply themselves; they’re not scholars or motivated by intellectual passions. why do you have to invalidate an entire discipline composed of actual, serious scholars? it’s an inane projection on your part.
Well really its the same as if driving examiners said "Look, you're not going to be a driving examiner yourself, just give me fifty quid and you can have your licence no questions asked"

It brings the whole system into question doesn't it?
erm. no. 

undergraduate degrees are not the totally of a discipline. you mong.

erm, yes

Just getting a driving licence isn't the totality of the discipline, some people go on to be race car drivers.
You average bread and butter car driver is trivial, relatively speaking.

breaking news: most people can pass an undergraduate degree if they apply themselves and work at it. it’s not some feat of scholarship.

i’ve said above at exhaustive length that most of my peers from undergrad pivoted away from ‘literary scholarship’ of undergrad essays and have had full and engaging careers in sometimes totally unrelated fields.

But apparently some people don't need to apply themselves or work at it, they get a free pass.

they’ve had the most expensive education literally that money can buy. nothing more expensive than an english boarding school education. it at least gets you into a top-tier uni by default. their exam results are finely tuned. something like 95% of all their students graduate with 11 A*s to As. are you going to criticise the national exam system next?

this class of people have learned to game the system. how does it call academic disciplines into disrepute? your analysis sucks, i’m sorry. think deeper.

What they've learned is they can game the system by having universities set up courses just for them and giving them a free ride.

Of course it brings the system into disrepute.

PPE is not an academic field of research. just stop with this fucking inane conversation. oh my god. don’t you get bored? you’ve been playing this jew’s harp tune for years.

No-one listens, now Britain is broken.

I tried to warn them, my conscience is clear.

don't get into the reeds of dilbert's pseudo-scientific 'racialist' worldviews. the Asian IQ versus the Indian skull shape versus the intrinsic White genius.

enough to make you feel vertigos of confusion and nonsense.
