The Canberra Times is reporting on concerns over the way the Universities Admission Index (UAI) is arrived at in the ACT.
Community feedback revealed few understood the system.
Some students worked hard at “manipulating” course choices to maximise their assessment results, and the lack of understanding was breeding myths about the system.
So, the current system rewards those who have a clear understanding of statistics, and research how it actually works?
I’d like to see the compulsory curriculum expanded somewhat to get better rounded students. But surely what is being described is a good preparation for life?
