5.13.4 Net Intake Ratio (NIR) NIR in all schools was at 6% (with 6% for male and 7% female). The value of NIR being less than 100 can be attributed to non-schooling children in the population who have reached the official secondary entry age, and to a less extent existence of underage and overage new entrants in the secondary subsector.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
