T HE problems of the transition from school to university have their roots far back in the school and extend their branches far into the university course. They are the responsibility of a
firm of three partners-school, student and university-in the setting of society. The school provides the right education for each individual; the university selects according to ability, then guides and stimulates; the student runs true to form. Given perfection at each stage, the university would reach its highest possible standard; unfortunately the imperfections by the way are cumulative, and costly to both individual and society.
