UK universities

I read the most strange statement today regarding the UK GCSE results from the Times'John O'Leary, who apparently writes for their Good University Guide:

"Today’s results are vitally important, especially for those who are aiming for a selective university - whatever those universities might think about GCSE as a measure of academic potential" [my bold]

I'm not going to wade into the dumbing down of A levels / too many people going to university debate, but it's a bit depressing to think there are non-selective universities out there.
