Court of Appeals: "Ranking of Notes represents values and public goods"

The Vice President of the Council of Rectors said he was "very happy for the thousands of families that today will be able to have a real possibility of access to higher education." The ruling indicates that the Grade Level Ranking is an instrument that has "a clear social commitment to recognize the merit and talent of the students."

Unanimously, the second chamber of the Santiago Court of Appeals rejected the 13 appeals for protection that had been filed against the Ranking of Notes. These resources were presented by students and representatives of secondary schools in the capital.

The Vice President of the Council of Rectors, Juan Manuel Zolezzi, commented on this favorable result for the Cruch in the company of María Elena González, director of the Single Admission System and Jaime Bustos, attorney of the Usach.

Rector Zolezzi pointed out that after reading the ruling, it seemed to him "quite well founded", adding that "the Court has been clear in pointing out that the incorporation of the Ranking of Notes and its maintenance corresponds to a decision adopted by the Cruch with evident academic support" .

In addition, the ruling indicates that the Ranking is "an instrument that represents values and public goods, with a clear social commitment to recognize the merit and talent of students, avoiding discrimination in the sociocultural field of applicants."

Rector Zolezzi pointed out that "Cruch makes a contribution to the country for equity and equality in an important aspect, which is ratified today." He added that with the Ranking of Notes “something is promoted that should never have been left aside, which is the importance of students studying during the four years of high school and understanding that this is the best way to enter university. They shouldn't train just for a test. "
