why doesn't Canada have a centralized college entrance exam?

I come from a country like south Korea. the only criteria to get into university in this country is your mark on a single standardized test.

why isn't Canada like that as well? also should public school teachers union be systematically abolished.

    No union should be abolished, in fact all workers should be encouraged to join their union and the unions should be national. Without unions you end up with conditions like those in the USA where people can do a full week's hard work and not be paid enough to live on. Where wages are so low that workers have to rely on tips from customers to make ends meet. Where workers do not get paid annual leave, paid sick leave and  long service leave, maternity leave, bereavement leave; penalty rates for working overtime, weekends and holidays; rostering principles and working conditions set by law, etc etc. All these are common in civilised countries with strong unions but almost non-existent in countries without strong unions. Most of those are third world countries.

    They have have a standardized test. It's called the SAT and Achievement Test or ACT and someone with lousy high school grades doesn't get admitted, moron.

      

    School teachers unions can't be systematically abolished, dumbass.

    Source(s): "I come from a country LIKE south Korea."? What country's like South Korea?

    1. Because they don't think that the result of a single, centralized college entrance exam is sufficient criteria for admissions.

    2. No, they should not.

    Centralized college exams haven't proved to be more efficient to filter good from bad students. You aren't in South Korea, get used to it.

      More efficient than what? If they aren't good, why does every college require them?

    Nothing to do with R&S.

    Thus, your exam mark is: Fail.

    In the US and Canada, your grades earned in high school also come into play.  This helps balance things out for (some) students who don't test well.  For example, my oldest son got near perfect test scores in math and science, but mediocre in English.

    I'm sure it has something to do with the Religion and Spirituality of Canada....
