Students who face forced withdrawal from the Methodist University College are directing their anger at authorities for their fate.

Over 1,400 of them are expected to lose their studentship because the National Accreditation Board insists they were admitted without the requisite entry grades.

Some say they feel cheated, and are traumatized as they prepare to pack out of campus.

Methodist University is not the only institution affected. A couple of months ago, the Central University College was also ordered to withdraw over 1,000 students.

Executive Secretary of the National Accreditation Board, Kwame Dattey said the primary responsibility rests on the mentor universities to ensure that their affiliates comply with the admission requirements.

A retired educationist, I.K. Gyasi however admonished prospective students to be cautious of applying to universities without possessing the requisite requirements.

He cautioned that in as much as the private universities would be seeking to do what is right, they are also in business to make profit.

He said it is dangerous for students to use false pretenses to gain admission into universities as in the long run they would eventually be found out and they might lose out.
