It’s senseless to deny a student with B2 in French & D7 in Maths from getting admission into university- Africa Education Watch

Mr Kofi Aare, the executive director of Africa  Education  Watch has supported a directive given by the Minister of Education Dr Yaw Osei Adutwm to universities to admit students with grade D7.

According to Mr Asare,   it does not make sense for students with grade D7 in Mathematics and B2, or even an A in French, to be denied admission to read French related courses because they had a weak pass in Mathematics.

“A student wants to specialise in French and you say that you need a minimum of C6 in Mathematics. It doesn’t make sense because there is virtually no correlation between French and a D7 in mathematics”, he insisted.

“In fact D7 is a pass according to the assessment body,” he said.

Dr Yaw Osei Aduwtum, the Education Minister, speaking at the swearing-in and inauguration of Governing Councils of some public technical Universities charged the schools to innovate and create access programmes for students with D7.

“There are institutions that are saying we are not getting the numbers but what happened to support students offering courses in diploma, electrical engineering and other technical or vocational courses and after that, you’re going to see the numbers going up.  They can go to work after the course period or  if they want to continue they can continue. So we shouldn’t see D7 as a barrier for students accessing tertiary,” he added.
