uk news bulletin: Teenagers warned over soft options.
A report by the Policy Exchange calls for universities to be more open about which subjects they consider to be inadequate preparation for their degree courses.
Data obtained by the think tank from 27 top universities shows that the vast majority favour traditional A-levels, such as maths and science, over so-called "softer" subjects such as law, media studies or psychology.
But just two of these universities, Cambridge and the London School of Economics, publish lists of "non preferred" subjects. The others offer no clear advice, the report says.
