This year’s entrance exams to the Liberian university system have passed not a single candidate.
Yes of some 25,000 students taking the exam precisely 100% of them failed.
According to university officials the applicants lacked enthusiasm and did not have a basic grasp of English. The President decided that having no university students was a bit awkward so she persuaded the universities to take in the top 1,800 candidates.
Now the country is in a bit of a turmoil and consultants have been brought in to try and sort out the mess.
