If you thought you did badly on that university entrance exam, take heart: at least some of your classmates aced it. Not so in Liberia: every student that took the test for admission to the University of Liberia failed it.
Nearly 25,000 school-leavers failed the test for admission to the University of Liberia, one of two state-run universities. [...]

It means that the overcrowded university will not have any new first-year students when it reopens next month for the academic year, he adds.
