Authorities of the Nigerian Law School has laid to rest controversies surrounding the mass failure of students in its 2013/2014 August Bar 2 Exam. The school said those who were retaking the exam were the ones that recorded mass failure. According to the Secretary to the Council of Legal Education and Director of Administration of the Nigerian Law School, those who were taking the exam for the first time had more than average pass percentage.
?The failure rate was high among the re-sit candidates with about 1168 out of 1335 students who registered failing the examinations while 88 students recorded ordinary pass. Also, 26 of the re-sit students recorded conditional pass,? she said. According to her, the failure rate among the re-sit student was high because most of them were either working or based outside Nigeria.
Continuing, the Council Secretary said that most of the protesting students were those who have sat for the examination for about four times, noting that such students refused to attend revision classes put in place for them by the school, saying the Director General of the school or any of its lecturers is not responsible for marking down the students.
