'Women are 35% more likely to go to university than men, the widest gap so far....The most likely are:
those living in London
those from more affluent families
those in non-white ethnic groupsThose most likely to be under-represented at university are poor, white males.White people, proportionate to their numbers in the population, are the least likely ethnic group to go to university, the admissions service says.'
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-35111772 where you can see how the BBC are very concerned with the disproportionate number of rich as opposed to poor people who go to university but much less so with the apparent disproportionate number of women as compared to men or Non-whites compared to whites.
