All 25,000 Students in Liberia Failed University Admission Exam

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. [...]

Many schools lack basic education material and teachers are poorly qualified, reports the BBC's Jonathan Paye-Layleh reports from the capital, Monrovia.

However, this is the first time that every single student who wrote the exam for a fee of $25 (£16) has failed, our reporter says.

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.

I would've thought the acceptance rate only includes those who were eligible to be accepted since those that fail the basic entrance exam don't matter.

It's like musical chairs it doesn't matter how many people there are in the room, all that matters is how many people are playing the game and how many chairs there are
