The numerus clausus law has proved an effective bar against Jewish students in the Hungarian upper schools and colleges, according to figures compiled by the Hungarian Statistical Office and published in the official organ.

Since 1923 the number of Jewish students in all the Hungarian high schools has decreased from 2,157 to 1,084, the statistical report shows. The numerus clausus also resulted in a large decrease in the number of Jewish students in the schools of medicine, technology, chemistry and veterinary training, while in the agricultural colleges and the teachers seminaries there are practically no Jewish students.
