Yep. That’s exactly it. Here in the US they de-emphasized exams in the mid-late 80s. College admissions were previously 2/3rds exams and 1/3rd grades, and then it was reversed in one fell swoop.

The proportion of girls admitted surpassed boys almost overnight.

The female preponderance in higher ed admissions was entirely engineered.

But it’s OK, because now credentials have been significantly devalued, and professors barely make middle-class pay (serves them right).

Fuck you buddy, I'm on the road to becoming a professor. Also, professors don't determine college admissions and just because you got terrible grades doesn't make it the teacher's fault.

So much wrong crammed into 5 sentences.

I would suspect you're angry because a girl bumped you from your pit scratching class, but I can't believe you actually thought you had a shot at even that level of college.

The proportion of girls admitted surpassed boys almost overnight.

How would de-emphasizing tests vs. grades suddenly make a huge difference in the admission ratio of boys to girls? Last year on the SATs, boys outperformed girls on average by a paltry 22 points - about 1 1/2%. It's hard to believe that's a significant deciding factor in admissions.

I wonder how is this guy able to use internet and honestly think that professors(the ones who thought and enginneered it)are not well paid.
