University of Leiden to accept ‘all’ candidates

The University of Leiden has announced that it will not select students according to the results of their high school examinations and will continue its policy of accepting all candidates. The university, which wanted to start selecting candidates on the basis of their grades, changed its mind following a study of last year’s candidates.
The study shows that students who receive poor grades in their high school examinations often turn out to be good university students. Also, the number of candidates is not that much larger than the number of places available.
