|Mean Score as Percentile of White Distribution|
As you'll notice, blacks and Hispanics don't do all that well on these tests, which is why they get affirmative action.
Note that language is a surprisingly small problem for Hispanics—they score no worse on the GRE Verbal subtest than on the GRE Quantitative, and only moderately worse on Verbal portion of the MCAT. Why? Because Hispanics who have problems with English generally don't finish college, or even high school.
Here's a second table showing what percentage of each ethnic group, relative to whites, take each test:
|% of 20-24 ages||61.5%||15.5%||4.9%||17.5%||10.2%|
|White Shr||Share of Test-Takers v. White Share|
If you are wondering why America's white elites aren't more worried about their kids facing competition from the huge number of Mexican immigrants they've let in, this educational indolence is one answer—at the highest levels of American society, Mexican-Americans just aren't much competition.
