The article seeks to understand the way in which the change in ICFES´s exam, as of the 2000, affected the importance of the school in the prediction of the achievement of the student. The article shows that the rough importance of the school, that among 1997 and 1999 was situated in similar levels (among the 27% and the 37%), is reduced considerably with the new exam, being located among the 10% and the 27% for the 2000. Thus, the discriminatory power to level of the schools of the new exam is reduced significantly in the tests of the common nucleus. It is likewise certain when is undertaken the net importance of the school, which oscillated among the 13% and the 20% in 1999 while in the year 2000 the interval in which moved went from the 6% to the 11%.
