Scottish university students 'more likely' to dropout

The dropout rate among students at Scottish universities is higher than the UK average, figures show.
Some 9.9% of students in their first year dropped out in Scotland in the year 2008/09, compared with 8.6% across the UK as a whole.
The Higher Education Statistics Agency (Hesa) figures also suggest pupils from state schools are less likely to get into university in Scotland.
The National Union of Students says poverty may be behind the dropouts.
