University students should undergo aptitude tests, stresses official

The Deputy Secretary for Economic & Infrastructure Sector & International Relations, Frank Aisi, made the statement after receiving the UOG independent investigation report.

“I would like to support and emphasise on one of the recommendations of the report about aptitude test for admission into the UOG," said Aisi.

“I think that is a very important aspect for student entry so that we can produce quality and not poor quality and half-baked students who gain entry into universities by dubious means."
