The WASSCE is one of the more important examinations in the life of Ghanaian teenagers. It’s the exam that decides whether or not you’re going to be able to get into university. And under the current system, you won’t get into a university if you get a D7 grade in one of your subjects that are considered.
However, the education minister has asked that universities accept students who get a D7 (50% in a subject) grade into their schools. These are some of the reactions that show why accepting D7 is important, and some reactions of people who disagree entirely.

But that also doesn’t mean that just asking universities consider students with a D7 is going to bring about the positive change of more students being accepted into the university. Leave a comment below with your thoughts on the minimum grade accepted by universities changing.
