The question is for any country any universities or high school or any education or certification. So if you now that university A have say, 20% Asian students, and if they use only test scores, say 80% of their students will be Asians. So if you know any such info that's a legitimate answer for this question.
A sample is that the best high school in US had 73% Asian students and is lowering it to 54%.
So basically I want answers with clear number. If we just use standardized tests, this much people from this group attend. If we put "effort for diversity" then we got this much.
For example, I've heard that engineering department in Berkelely has 80% Asian students when they are color blind and don't discriminate against Asians. On the other hand, other universities discriminate against Asians and have lower admission for Asian students.
The thing is that statement is a bit controversial. Harvard, for example, could argue that they don't "discriminate" Asians but just take into account holistic factors like race or diversity and stuffs. Conservatives would say that holistic factor is just subjective and an excuse for diversity.
So there is no way to know whether any universities discriminate against Asians or not because the definition of "discriminate" is vague.
If counting only on standardized test scores, what percentage of admitted students will be Asians?
The same goes for public universities in Indonesia. There are rumors, almost open secrets, that chineses are discriminated to go to public university in Indonesia. If there is no discrimination against Chinese, what percentage of students in Indonesian's public university will be chinese?
What percentage of Singapore university students are chinese (with or without discrimination)?
Note: What I mean by objective criteria is a criteria that can be measured objectively. For example, a school may use eye color, or armpit hair length to decides admission. It's pretty obvious for everyone that it doesn't have any effect whatsoever on whether students with certain eye color or certain armpit hair length will be more successful at college. However, we can also agree that tests for eye color and armpit hair length can be done objectively and comparably.
So if some schools use say, armpit hair length to admit students and somehow that changes some groups end up being more or less likely to be admitted that would count.
Grade in high schools, for example, however, is not objectively comparable. An A in some high schools may be equivalent of an F in other schools.
This question does not question whether SAT is a good predictor of academic performance. Some say yes. Some say no. I don't care about it. All I want to know is if schools use, say, SAT only, how many asians are admitted, and how many are not, which schools, do you have data, etc.
If they have other standardized tests, like armpit hairlength, or being able to do 3 points shot in basket ball, that'll count too.
