Many of these tests were ordered as multiple choice questions.
One interesting aspect was that there were not separate examinations for each subject.
Instead, there was only 1 test for all subjects.
As an instance, medical students appear in one 7-8 hour exam on a single day to show their preparedness.
Same holds for financial analyst examination where candidates look in one
exam of six months.
There was lot of work to perform and jobs were plentiful. Studying at university for four years has been out of question as this took giving up wages for so many years.
Finally, professionals chose to establish their own certification
This guaranteed that only technically competent graduates could combine professions.
American universities started offering new classes in professional subjects to pull students who have been aspiring to become engineers and accountants and financial analysts.
The issue was that many of these professions did not value the technical comprehension of the graduates of the universities.
There’s big gap between professional tests conducted in US and UK. We should look at background of education, to understand the difference.
UK universities have been designed to serve the upper class. Members of the upper class possessed properties and had great deal of free time to learn and discuss new concepts.
