University Admissions Policy in a Developing Country: Evidence from the University of the West Indies.
Handa, Sudhanshu; Gordon, Peter-John
Economics of Education Review, v18 n2 p279-89 Apr 1999
Critically analyzes the University of West Indies' admissions policy of increasing the share of undergraduate part-time students. Data on student grades in first-year social-science courses shows that part-time students are significantly more likely to fail these courses, due to lower motivation and greater time constraints.
