All 25,000 students fail University of Liberia entrance exam

University of Liberia

The University of Liberia stands by its decision and the outcome of the exam.

No single student passed the entrance exam to Liberia’s national university this year, a fact Liberia’s education minister finds it hard to believe, reports the BBC.

 

“I know there are a lot of weaknesses in the schools but for a whole group of people to take exams and every single one of them to fail, I have my doubts about,” Ms David-Tarpeh said. “It’s like mass murder.”

 

Nearly 25,000 students that sat the entrance exam failed. The students lacked enthusiasm and did not have a basic grasp of English, a university official told BBC.

 

This means that the University – one of the two state universities – will not have first years in 2013.

 

The education minister is not convinced that all students failed and will be making a visit to the University of Liberia to seek an explanation and possibly ask to see the results.

Speaking to VoA news, a private consultant said the University had made the entrance exam stringent.

 

James Dorbor Jallah was hired by the university to manage and administer this year’s entrance exam.

 

“Students seeking admission into the university would study harder if they are made to understand that admission is based on personal ability and not through bribery,” said Dorbor-Jallah.
