Sydney University Lowers Entry Scores For Women Who Can’t Make it Into Male-Dominated Courses

Feminists love to act like they can do anything a man can do…only better.

Sorry ladies, it’s just not true.

Men and women are different for a reason, and that’s how God intended it to be.

Men are naturally physically stronger, and better critical thinkers. Women are gifted nurturers who are more emotionally strong, and can read people far more precisely than men ever could.

However, radical feminists refuse to embrace their strengths, and instead treat them like weaknesses.

In addition, feminist’s insecurities about who they are and what they’re truly capable of, causes them to engage in this absurd “equality game” that always blows up in their face.

Case in point – The University of Technology Sydney was forced to make a whopping 10-point adjustment in their entry scores in hopes of addressing the “gender imbalance” (or under qualified girls) in engineering, computing and construction.

The University of Technology Sydney is trying to encourage more young women to study engineering, computing and construction degrees by adjusting year 12 entry scores for female applicants.

The university has received approval from the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board to make a 10-point adjustment to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank of female students applying for those degrees for the 2020 academic year.

The university hopes it will help address gender imbalances in those male-dominated industries.

UTS Women in Engineering and IT director Arti Agarwal insisted the move would not lower standards.

“We’re not taking in underperforming students or doing tokenism here,” she told Guardian Australia. “Nobody is getting a free pass … They all have to do all the degree requirements [and] internships.”

Agarwal said the move was part of the university’s 30-year effort to improve gender equity in engineering, which includes primary school and high school outreach programs and mentoring for female engineers.

“We looked at the performance of Atar and the performance of [grade point average] so a lower Atar did not mean they would get a lower GPA. A higher Atar did not mean they were best in the class,” Agarwal said.

She noted a large number of engineering students gained entrance into the undergraduate degree through other pathways, which often were lower than the year 12 Atar minimum score.

Agarwal said previously that, on average, females received 4-8% of UTS offers to study mechanical engineering/mechatronics. The university expects the score adjustment will increase female study offers to about 20%.

In civil engineering on average 16% of offers are to female students and this could rise to 20%. In computer science 10% of offers are to female students and this could lift to 19%.

According to Engineers Australia, 84% of Australian engineering graduates are men. Female engineers make up 13% of the workforce. Australia faces a looming shortage of engineers.

A 2017 Engineers Australia report found part of the problem was low levels of female high school students were studying the prerequisite subjects. Less than 6% of girls nationally studied physics in year 12, with advanced maths at 6.2%.

Engineers Australia’s professional diversity manager Justine Romanis backed the UTS move.

“We need to be disruptive – what we have been doing to date is just not working,” she said.

She said to attract more females to engineering it was important to plant the seeds early with research backing career discussion with children as young as year 4. [Guardian]

It’s perplexing why universities are so hell-bent on pushing women into careers that they’re not good at or qualified for.

How on earth can that be beneficial to anyone?

Would you want a doctor who had lower entry scores in med school?

No.

Well, I wouldn’t want an engineer building a high rise that had ’em either.
