A long discussion about the change of the system for access to higher education has been carried out in Greece recently and a number of different proposals have been put forward by different associations and individuals to this end. In order to adopt one of those proposals it is imperative to assess them on the basis of specific criteria, which are widely accepted by both the Greek society and various educational and scientific associations. Such criteria could, in our opinion, form the conditions and prerequisites that a system for access to higher education should satisfy. The present paper aims to delineate these criteria, the most important of which are: a) equality as to participation in selection processes, moderation of the socio-economic inequalities, social consensus, validity and reliability of the examination processes, correspondence of the interests of the candidates to the type of studies they follow, upgrading of the Lyceum and others.
