Breaking News: 2,034 fail Law School entrance exam

Two thousand and thirty-four (2,034) LLB candidates who sat for the 2021/2021 academic year Ghana School of Law 2021 Entrance Exams failed in the exams.

Out of the 2,824 students from the various law faculties across the country who sat for the exam, only 790 of them passed representing approximately 28%.

1045 out of 2720 students passed the 2020 Entrance Exams which represents 38% pass.

This two years are by far better than 2019 where only 128 out of 1082 students passed the Entrance Exams which accounted for 10% pass rate.

The Management of the Ghana School of Law revealed plans are underway to run the triple track system in order to enroll more students.

According to the Director of the Ghana School of Law, Maxwell Opoku Agyeman, due to the large numbers admitted, the triple track system will enable them maximize the use of their limited facility.

The new system, he said, will also ensure that the weekly academic timetable of lectures become more time-efficient.

“It’s not even double track, its triple track if you want to use it, which is not a double track as you have in SHS. For example, students are supposed to have 24 hours per contact hours in a week. Meanwhile, if you add up, how many hours do you have in a week? Five days?

“You realise that students have been wasting time on campus doing nothing because we spread lectures, one in the morning, maybe one in the evening, the following day one in the morning, one in the evening. It’s waste of time.”

According to Mr Opoku Agyeman, the coronavirus pandemic afforded candidates ample time to prepare adequately for the entrance exam which was written in August this year.
