High schools and universitys can nowadays select students for study programmes with a quota (a predetermined amount of first year students they can admit).
Selection is all about realizing the best possible match between the a student's talents and the specific requirements set by a study programme. NOA assessments are increasingly being used in these admission questions. Selection also stimulates self-selection and a conscious choice of study. By selection, prospective students have to make a more informed choice at an earlier stage of the selection process.
