Some hundreds of the Medicine Faculty gathered on Thursday in front of the school’s premise protesting against the decision to abolish the pre-graduation examinations. They blocked the faculty’s entrance claiming that the abolishment of examinations seasons in May or June and the shortening of February’s season from three weeks to only 10 days endanger their graduation.
The students also complained that they would be forced to pay one more time the full fee for another scholar year if they fail in only one examination. According to them, in spite of an earlier agreement with the Senate and the University’s Board that an examination season would take place in June ahead of the graduation, this decision was abolished.
