Students With D7 In Wassce Should Be Able To Go To Tertiary Universities - Education Minister

The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has charged state universities of providing access to higher education to WASSCE D7 graders. According to the Minister of Finance, institutions must provide access to these students through innovative programs.

Dr. Adutwum does not understand why a student's educational journey should be canceled just because they have received a D7 at WASSCE. The minister ordered schools to innovate and create access programs for these students during the inauguration and opening of the boards of several public technical universities.

Currently, most public universities have rated C6 as the lowest WASSCE score a student can achieve for admission. While this has been questioned by some, the requirements have hardly changed, as many students have to rewrite the course in order to apply to higher education.

According to Dr. The adutum should allow the student to prove their skills.

“Our gross enrollment rate in higher education is 18.8%, South Korea is 73.6%."

"Mauritius is 40%, you go there and everything changes. 18% we are not going to change Ghana, so the president has set a 40% agenda which also means you have to look at your program, more degrees, so students who are at home with D7 can find a place in your institution."

"There are institutions that say we don't get the numbers, but what happens with the support of students who offer undergraduate degrees, electrical engineering courses, and then you see the numbers go up, and then they can work. And then if you want to continue, you can move on. So we should not see D7 as a barrier for students to enter university.”
