Pandemic Dents Turnout at Brazil University Entrance Exams

Turnout for Brazil’s standardized university admission exam appears to be the lowest in 15 years, and experts say that’s largely because of the pandemic’s effect on the nation’s education. Just over 3 million students signed up to take the annual exam, down 44% from last year’s registration and the lowest since 2006. The grueling 5 1/2-hour test, held over two weekends, is the main admission standard for Brazilian universities.
