Students of the Victorian school are accepted in teaching courses with ATAR of 17 out of 100

Students who fail in year 12 in Victoria are being accepted into college-level teaching courses, despite their own failed attempts at education.

Students who fail in Year 12 are being accepted into university-level teaching courses, despite their own failed attempts at education.

The figures appear when it is revealed that some aspiring teachers scored less than 80 percent of the students in Victoria and still earned a place in college.

In fact, an accepted student received an ATAR, the percentage range that compares graduates with their peers, from only 17.9 of a possible 99.95, according to the Herald Sun.

The range is almost 50 percentage points below the minimum score established by the Victoria government in an attempt to raise teaching standards.

However, universities are restricting the rules through courses that promise low-ranking students the opportunity to become professors.

At Victoria University, in Melbourne, an Education Studies diploma allows students to transfer to the Bachelor of Education in their second year despite their performance in high school.

And although the university says that qualification does not guarantee a career as a teacher, the university website says otherwise.

According to the site, the diploma will help students achieve (their) dream of becoming teachers. "

It also promises that the course will prepare (students) to enter the second year of a teaching degree & # 39;

Earlier this year, the Victoria government pledged to be the first state to increase the minimum ATAR for undergraduate teaching courses to 70 next year, compared to 65.

The change followed the 2016 tests, which revealed that 19 of the 52 institutions had more than 10 percent of students who do not pass a literacy and competency arithmetic test.

"I'm sorry, but if someone tries all year and gets 17.9, they should be looking for alternative careers," wrote one man on social media.

& # 39; Someone who gets 17.9 is trying extremely hard to fail. The idea that such a pathetic score will allow them to enter the university is a disgrace, "added another.

Some parents in social networks were more optimistic, arguing that an ATAR brand does not define the intelligence or ability of a person to be a great teacher.

"As a teacher, I can tell you that the best teachers are not the best teachers, the best teachers are those who have the capacity to form quality relationships and get the best out of their students." The fact that he has a high grade of ATAR does not mean that has a suitable personality to become a teacher, "wrote a woman.
