Clever SYRIZA policy proposal: Eliminate Uni Entrance Exams

CNN Greece report:

I like taking exams and being tested all the time. Yet, policywise I mostly agree with the Minister's idea to phase out un entrance exams. 

I think the testing should be during the studies.

Alas, based on my experience with Deree College American College of Greece graduates at Dropbox I have to also agree with the Minister on not allowing private Greek unis.

Deree College graduates I worked with were not as good as Greek state and foreign uni ones. But they thought they were and so did management, Deree College alims too.

Yes, Deree College, Nick Panayotopoulos Athens College '81, MIT '85, Northwestern '87, INSEAD '90 finds himself in 2018 in the unpleasant position of stating publicly that he noticed a certain practice re Deree College grads at Dropbox Greece. It may be wider within the provider organization since the country manager is also a Deree graduate.

What else can I say.
