Most countries around the world have entrance exams.

There might be other requirements to get into the universities.

Other places might ask for references or a personal statement.

Aside from that, the tests themselves seem to be standardized

It was the writing test just to ensure that I had a basic writing competency.

After that, hey just looked at my high school marks, it was easy for me.
