Holy pooe, this wasn't from The Onion. So this is why some grades are based on the curve.

That`s exactly what they ended up doing in order to admit 1800 of them.

We do this as well in the US, i.e., grading blacks on a separate curve so a certain number of them are guaranteed to pass. It`s called Affirmative Action.

Ok I did the math and would like to correct my earlier intuition. With the assumptions of 4 choice multiple test and 100 questions, the probability that 1 person out of 25k gets 65% is essentially 0. So it is possible. Also, can I get a "yay" for nerd Friday nights?

@Reignblazer So, if the objective test results contradict your preconceived, politically correct, biased, and baseless conclusion, then that, to you, is proof that the test, which has proven to be accurate in millions of cases for over 100 years, is "bullpoo."

What color is the sky in your world?
