The article offers a measurement and correlational analysis of the results of the State College Entrance Exam and the Higher Education Quality Exam. It is a pilot study that employs a database with 2,888 students who were majoring in business administration between 2000 and 2005. Using multivariate models, the study found weak predictive correlations between the two mandatory exams associated with higher education in Colombia. It also found a weak linear relationship between all the evaluated components of knowledge and the general grade point average in college.
