The president of the Ghana school of Law SRC explains the reason for the huge failure of entrance exams.

Mr. Wonder Victor Kutor, President of the Students Representative Council (SRC) of the Ghana School of Law, has called for an all-inclusive approach to dealing with the causes of the mass law school entrance examination failure in order to deal with the situation properly.

He ascribed the widespread failure to, among other things, the little time available to candidates to study for the entrance exams.

Inadequate preparation, in his opinion, is one of the primary reasons for failure.

Mr. Kutor stated that when law students graduate in July and appear for examinations in August, there would almost definitely be insufficient time for them to conduct adequate reading and learning.

He also highlighted uncontrollable anxiousness as a contributing cause.

His remarks follow the failure of two thousand and thirty-four (2,034) LLB students who appeared for the 2021/2021 academic year Ghana School of Law 2021 Entrance Exams.

Only 790 of the 2,824 students from various legal colleges around the country who sat for the test passed, or about 28 percent, while 72 percent failed.

Speaking on the Good evening Ghana programme on Tuesday, September 28, Mr. Kutor said “You leave school in July and sit for exams in August and you are doing, let us say taxation or land law and you go and meet tort and constitutional law if you haven’t revised enough you will fail.

“So, we need to have a discussion as a nation. When students graduate in July you allow them to wait and apply the following year.

“Let is discuss this properly, Students graduated in July and they sat for exams in August. Was the preparation enough? This is not to defend the General Legal Council but I want us to have a holistic discussion on this matter as a nation going forward.

“We must not limit ourselves to pass and failure. It is not only about passing what happens in this country is that once they release the entrance results then we all start talking about the failure rate but let us be honest, which is why the SRC we have established the scholarship fund.

“I am glad to say that those who have passed can access the scholarship fund, a very transparent process. If people pass without the money to pay, then what is the point? So the discussion shouldn’t be pass rate or failure rate, it is also about the funding. When you enter the law school, in terms of cost, there is a big challenge.”
