The missing 3%
IN THE LETTER headlined “CIDA welcomes all” (25 January 2007), CEO Taddy Blecher defends the CIDA City Campus admissions policy, saying that CIDA is open to all stu- dents as long as they meet certain criteria, which includes a pass in mathematics.
He then describes the gender profile of the student population as follows: 48% male and 49% female. What criteria does the remaining 3% meet? And, based on his maths competence, would Taddy qualify for admission to his own university?
