Students that missed the cutoff point to join universities foresee a lifeline as the Ministry of Education reveals points to join a remedial program last week. The cutoff point for natural science students stands at 263 for men and 227 for women while students enrolled in social science with scores above 220 for men and 190 for women are listed in the remedial program. The 29,909 students who managed to score more than half will directly join higher education institutions. The Ministry of Education revealed the results for national examinations last month, where only 3.3pc of the students from nearly a million that took the exam managed to score above 50pc. The Ministry revealed entrance points to the universities would not be lowered than half leaving 866,611 students in dilemma. The figure is less than a quarter of the 152,000 students who joined the 42 public universities as first-year students last year. There are 47 public universities with more than 61 billion Br allocated budget for the year and an aggregated 33 billion Br covering recurrent expenditures.
