A new study—which shows that Israelis score below the world average in a MBA standardized test—is the latest evidence to disprove the oft-claimed “Jewish intellectual superiority” used as an excuse for their domination of academic institutions.
The report, as published in the Israel Ynet News service, showed that “Israelis taking the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score lower grades than the global average.
“According to the annual report of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), an international non-profit organization of business schools, Israeli examinees scored an average grade of 484 points in 2012, while the average grade of all GMAT examinees was 548 points.
“Although the Israelis’ average score is higher than that of candidates from the Middle East – 440 points, American examinees reached a more impressive figure with an average of 530 points.
“Examinees from Australia and the Pacific region top the list with an average of 597 points, followed by examinees from Southeast Asia with 578 points.
“The United States leads in the number of examinees with 144,650 students who took the test, despite an average annual drop of 1.4% in the past five years. An average annual increase of 11.2% was recorded in the overall number of examinees from outside the US, with Israel ranking 12th with 2,385 GMAT examinees.”
GMAT is an admission test for a graduate management program, such as MBA, in the world’s leading universities. It assesses a person’s analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in standard written English. However, there are additional requirements for master’s degree studies, including work experience, credentials, essays and volunteer work.
The claim that Jews are “cleverer” than other people is most often given as the reason why they dominate academic institutions in America in particular—but that has been thoroughly disproved with the release of Ron Un’s paper, “The myth of American meritocracy: How corrupt are Ivy League admissions,” which shows that Jewish students actually perform less well academically than non-Jews, and that their domination of academic institutions is exclusively due to an organized campaign of discrimination against non-Jewish would-be students.
