Selection of Advantaged and Disadvantaged South African Students for University Admission.
Skuy, Mervin; And Others
South African Journal of Higher Education, v10 n1 p110-18 1996
A South African study explored predictors of success among 18 educationally disadvantaged and 8 advantaged students in a University of Witwatersrand developmental studies program. Results showed academic success was considerably less predictable among disadvantaged students. Universally-used admission criteria were not predictive for either group; noncognitive/process attributes were not predictive for disadvantaged students. The need for better admission criteria is stressed. (Author/MSE)
