Resumo: The candidates for the Center for Computer Science postgraduate programme of UFPE, Brazil, are selected based on their CVs. Five attributes are linearly weighed to produce the candidate’s score, which serves as ranking criterion. The postgraduate collegiate was concerned this process could be restricting access to the programme. This paper analyzes the profiles both of the 148 students and of the other 666 candidates who did not enter the programme in the last 4 years. This research concludes that the 5 attributes used could not discriminate between good and weak students. The 4 additional attributes made it feasible. Moreover, this paper has proposed an effective system and has shown that the previous system was indeed being restrictive.
