British Students put last. Straight-A student can't study to be a GP because of EU Invasion


A Straight-A student who wants to be a doctor has abandoned hopes of going to university this year as a record number of Europeans apply.
.
Amber Fox, 17, has been rejected by three universities and put on a waiting list by a fourth.
Yet she already has an A grade in AS-level physics and 11 GCSEs, including 10 A*s.
.
She is expected to achieve A*s in her maths and biology A-levels and As in chemistry and economics.
.
But Amber, who goes to Royal Latin Grammar School in Buckingham, has been turned down by Oxford, Leeds and Imperial College in London.
.
Recent figures show the number of students from other EU countries gaining a British college place rose by five per cent last year to almost 118,000.
.
This year the number of EU candidates is up by 33 per cent, with a surge in applications from Romania, Latvia and Lithuania.
.
Meanwhile, some British students are struggling to find a university place.
.
Amber, from Milton Keynes, is waiting to hear whether London’s King’s College, which put her on the waiting list, will accept her.
.
She said: “I have dreamed of being a doctor since I was a little girl and have worked really hard to get where I am.
.
“But I don’t think there’s much chance of going to uni this year. I will probably have to get a job instead – but there aren’t many of those available either.”
.
Amber was among 1,407 students who applied to study medicine at Oxford University.
.
Although she made it on to the shortlist of 425 candidates, she failed to gain one of the 151 places.
.
She failed to even make the shortlist at Leeds while Imperial rejected her after an interview last month.
.
She said: “I am devastated that I’m being denied the opportunity to enter higher education, even though it is something the Government says it is encouraging.”
.
This year the number of applicants for undergraduate courses is expected to exceed 700,000, with 220,000 likely to be rejected.
.
Nick Seaton, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said: “It is a national disgrace that British students should be turned away, particularly when they have good grades.
.
The Government should be sticking up for the interests of the people who live in this country and pay taxes rather than pandering to European law that allows people to take advantage.”
.
But University and College Union general secretary Sally Hunt said: “It is encouraging that the UK is still seen as a popular destination for foreign students.”
.
What a Traitor Sally Hunt is !
