A total of 1,045 candidates out of the 2,763 who sat for this year’s Ghana School of Law entrance exam have passed.
These candidates were able to meet the 50% pass mark set for qualification into the school with a total pass rate of about 23% and nearly three times higher than what was recorded last year.
The number is a significant improvement on what was experienced in the 2019 entrance exams.
In that year, just 128 of the 1,820 who sat for the exam were said to have passed.
Whilst this year’s results may be described as a positive turn in legal education in the country, SRC President-elect of GSLaw, Philemon Saar, says that it does not end their demand for serious reforms.
“This is victory but it doesn’t necessarily mean that is the end of reforms. We still hold on to our position that the legal education we have in this country needs serious reforms, reforms that will allow broad access for people,” he told CitiNews.
