The most recent generations of undergraduates at Wageningen University are performing worse than their predecessors.
The figures for Wageningen confirm the results of a large-scale evaluation of undergraduate performance since the introduction of the so-called upper secondary phase in Dutch high school education. The report, published by the Tweede Fase Adviespunt, concludes that extra subjects and general development have received too much attention, and this has been at the expense of specific subject knowledge. Wageningen lecturers have noticed this as well. / JH
