I don't suppose that there will be accountability because they've managed to distribute things.

Firstly, you have grades. You have the fact that grades aren't given fairly anymore. Work isn't blind graded, often. University level academics have the students name (racial information often) and ID number (year they first enroled with the University so information on first year, second year, third year, or more)...

There are people who have been picked out already as the 'high achievers'. Identified from High School. They are at University on scholarship already and their way is paid. They are often from wealthy homes. But the decision was made to keep them in NZ, I guess, and not to send them overseas on scholarship, or to pay for an overseas (e.g., US or British) education. The Prime Minister... John Key's son... Went to University in France, I believe. From his first year out of Secondary School...

Those kids would be basically untouchable, I reckon.

Other kids grades are reverse engineered. Pretty sure I have seen evidence of not being given marks for things I should have been given marks for. I mean... I have seen the short answer marking schedule and various answers I provided were word for word perfect and legible. The course convenor said she didn't know why the lecturers marked me wrong wrong wrong... Then said they justified it in speech to her and my (lower than it should have been) grade stuck. Would stick. What was I going to do about it?

So the grades are dubious. The correct answer is hidden more and more and more so students cannot check for accuracy. Often there will be essays to try and hide / conceal the fact that things are not graded properly anymore.

So that's grades.

One part of selection.

Another part of selection is performance on the UMAT. It used to be. But then it got to obvious it was reverse-engineered to give the private school kids the best grades and so on. Location location location decile rating of your home address. Crap like that. The UCAT isn't going to give us information to check anything at all. They give us an absolute score. The University (apparently) says it's method is the uncheckable by us amount our score differs from the mean. But we aren't told what the mean is. So... It's just a way of trying to trick / fool / con people into believing they are stupid and incompetent. Unless they have been previously picked to be a 'chosen one' in which case it is supposed to be adding to that...

So that's another meaningless marker added to the previous.

The third is interview. Which is to check you don't have 3 heads. No, it's not. That would be discrimination. It's something non-discriminatory. Obviously.

And that's it.

It would be hard to bring disrepute to something that is doing such a terrible job of making itself reputable.

I mean... Trying to pass stuff off as reputable when it isn't... What's that called?

Up is down and so on and so on and so on...

And the point of student essays is so the students can write the lecturers course content for them.

And it's just a hoop to get through quickly quickly quick as you can.

So you don't become one of them.

I don't know why it has to be so.
