Around 63 per cent said they would not go to university if fees rose to £6,000, rising to 80 per cent if they were faced with uncapped fees.The news will be a bitter blow to Vince Cable, a champion of the tax, as he prepares for a speech this afternoon on funding for higher education.The government is awaiting a review by former BP boss Lord Brown, who is expected to recommend fees rise by £3,290 to as much as £7,000 a year. whatsapp Graduate tax will reward dropouts, say directors Share Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:27 pmlast_img
