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).
