I think allocation is by merit.stetan wrote: ↑Wed Jan 15, 2020 4:55 pmConsider this scenerio, the JC has 100 placesynwa9 wrote: ↑Wed Jan 15, 2020 3:38 pmIt is very clearly stated in the JAE admission booklet that the admission criteria are net L1R5, citizenship, gross L1R5. If still tied, it says that there will be a computerized ballot with EQUAL CHANCE given to candidates. No where does it mention that the order in which the JC was selected matter. So it means that if two students have identical nett and gross scores apply and both are citizens, it theoretically should not matter if the student put the JC as 1st choice or 3rd choice? Can someone shed some light on this because I keep hearing people say that that is not the case and that the student who put the JC as 1st choice would be given priority.
Computer consider round 1 : 1st choices of all students. At this round 100 students of COP 7 chose the JC and got in
Student B have the same COP 7 but only put the JC as 3rd choice ( which I presume the computer will process in round 3, correct me if I am wrong). But all places have already been filled in Round 1
I may be wrong though
All the 2 pointers will be considered first. Followed by the 3 pointers, 4, 5, 6, ......
For the above scenario, student B will be considered together with all the 7 pointers. If he doesn't qualify for the 1st and 2nd choice, he competes on the 3rd choice together with all the other 7 pointers.
I believe the allocation task is easily solved using AI. Just input all the requirements. While human uses sequential logic, the computer is capable of processing multiple values concurrently.
So barring any computer bugs, student B should not miss 3rd choice to someone who has put the sch as 1st choice, assuming they get the same COP 7.
