Liberia education ministry stunned as zero students pass university admission exam
2013-08-27 12:33:19 | (0 Comments)
Liberia's education minister says she finds it hard to believe that not a single candidate passed this year's university admission exam.
Nearly 25,000 school-leavers failed the test for admission to the University of Liberia, one of two state-run institutions.
A university official told the BBC that the students lacked enthusiasm and did not have a basic grasp of English.
The official said many schools lack basic educational material and teachers are poorly qualified.
The results mean that the overcrowded university will not have any new first-year students when it reopens next month for the academic year.
