there are various forms of intelligence not to mention diffrences in the ways ppl express their intelligence most effectively. these things differ from person to person and things like culture, upbringing and sex is a factor. ppl from similar backgrounds are more likely to be like one another, learn the same, express themselves the same and be strong in the same areas.
a good test should show diffrent kinds of intelligence and allow ppl to show of their knowledge however they are most comftorable. but thats not the case here, its biased towards ppl of a certain background. the tests are too narrow and alot of ppl dont get the chance to show what they know even if they might be smart enough to get in had the been given a fair chance, had the tests covered all bases.
its not an IQ test, bro
Its a math and english test very similar to the SAT. I took it myself 6 years after moving to the US and passed it to get into one of those schools
What "bases" should the test have covered?
