Recently I have had to interview potentials for a job. Looking through their CVs, I automatically made assumptions about the candidates according to their ex-schools and universities, which I am a little ashamed of
. The ex-grammar school applicants tended
to go onto better universities and better grades overall, although of course there were some deviants from this rule.
After weeding out and interviewing, the best candidates have been short-listed to two. One is an ex-KEAS and the other from a comprehensive. Both come across equally good. I suppose what I am trying to say is..it doesn't really matter which school or university they went to
and I recognise that I was biased in my analysis of their CVs! :)
Yes. The fact that they both came across equally well says a lot. They were equally good, irrespective of how well they did on a single test on one day of their lives at the age of 10
