In other news, the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education, Professor Kwesi Yankah has stated that government is seeking to remove all the barricades to admission processes and policies that are not fair.

These existing admission requirements, most at times, discriminates against students from less endowed homes and institutions who are required to get credits in all core subjects.

The status of grades such as D7 in some core subjects would be clarified to give hope to some applicants who have passed Mathematics without credit, but are still being denied access even to courses where Mathematics is not required.
