BBC News - Liberia students all fail university admission exam

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 universities.
The students lacked enthusiasm and did not have a basic grasp of English, a university official told the BBC.
Liberia is recovering from a brutal civil war that ended a decade ago.

What a day for Liberia. Gave me quite the giggle.

Remember reading about this - the one highlight is that the University did not dumb down entrance requirements to fill the empty spaces. I only hope the Universities can survive a year without fee paying year 1 students.
