UC admits largest, most diverse class ever, but it was harder to get accepted

Among California applicants, Latinos were the largest group admitted for the second year in a row, making up 37% of the 84,223 students offered freshman seats. Asian Americans made up 34%, white students 20% and Black students 5%.

UC Irvine made the largest year-to-year gains in diversity...
 the share of Black students doubled and American Indian students tripled. Admission offers to Latino students increased by 30% while those to Asian Americans fell by 25% and to whites by 9.4%.

Hispanics moving on up!

At the current child birth rate, Hispanics multiplied like rabbits, and Asians, pandas. Soon, colleges will be begging for Asian applicants.

UC eliminated the use of SAT and ACT test scores in admissions decisions and made other changes, such as suspending the letter-grade requirements for most of the last two academic years.

Is this a good thing?

Wasn't this done in response to Covid? I recall some high schools foregoing letter grades for classes but I may be remember this wrong.
