Speaking to on the issue, a respected Ghanaian educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi rubbished the long-held view that SHS leavers who got a D7 in their WASSCE are disqualified from gaining admission into Ghanaian universities.

"Presently, D7 is ACCEPTED in Ghanaian universities. Anyone who says D7 is not accepted is ignorant of the university admission systems in Ghana.
"The basic entry requirements into a Ghanaian university is to obtain a C6 or better in 3 core subjects and 3 elective subjects. Which means, one needs at least a credit pass in 6 subjects to gain a University admission. This implies that a student who did 4 core subjects and 4 electives in Senior High School has the liberty to obtain D7 or E8 in two of the subjects and still gain admission to the university, once he or hse obtain C6 or better in 6 subjects" he explained.

He also opened up on situations where a student who had a D7 in the WASSCE could pursue a law course in Ghana.

"So, for typical Ghanaian student with a D7 in WASSCE who wants to pursue a course such as Law, the route will be to either pursue a Diploma in Law, and top it up with the LLB, obtain a degree in another area and use it to pursue the 3 year post-degree LLB or go to the private university" he explained.

He concluded by admonishing persons who had D7 in the WASSCE to forgo the notion that they would not be given admission to Ghanaian universities.

D7 is not a dream killer. A lot of people with D7 have gone ahead to obtain various degrees with the D7," he told the website.

Ghanaians delight over the new revelation

Netizens who thronged the comment section of the video thanked the young man for enlightening them.
