The chapter details the educational pathway students take during pre-tertiary schooling, their academic readiness before college, and the process they undergo in their application and admission to university. It analyzes how students attending BRIC universities and colleges are selected into differentiated higher education institutions, their learning experiences at different types of institutions within each country, and how students regard their learning experiences and their preparation for work (with special emphasis on engineering and computer science education), As part of this analysis, the chapter investigates how BRIC higher education systems train their engineering and computer science students compared to similar institutions in the developed countries.

Keywords:   student background characteristics, state political legitimacy, international assessments, tracking mechanisms, engineering curriculum, college entrance examinations, applying to college, university admissions, student experiences
