 Mass failure in Tanzania law school exams – report

Lawyers in Tanzania have raised concern following reports that only 26 out of 633 students passed exams at the law school – representing a 4.1% pass rate, the Mwananchi news site reports.

Some 342 students were being told to resit exams, while 265 others were discontinued all together.

Graduates from various universities have to pass the examination at the law school in order to be admitted to the bar.

The poor performance has been blamed on poor standards at universities, the law school’s administrators are quoted as saying.

Previous years had also seen a drop in performance but this year’s results were the worst in recent time.
