Zesjescultuur

The ‘sixes culture’ refers to the tendency of Dutch students to put in no more effort than the minimum necessary to score six out of 10 in exams –¬†which is enough to scrape a pass. Efforts are being made to change this, for example by guaranteeing university places to high-scoring students.
