The prestigious Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has released the admission list for applicants from Less Endowed Senior High Schools for the 2022/2023 academic year.
Every academic year, the Kumasi-based university gives special preference to students from schools categorised as less endowed due to non-availability of teaching and materials.
Some of these schools are located in hard-to-reach villages where there are little or no social amenities.
Every year, KNUST hands admission to thousands of applicants from these schools, even though they may not have made the required cut-off grade for a particular course.
