The Chairman of Parliament’s Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs has written to the Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo seeking a halt in a repeat class for students who failed the bar examination.
Alexander Kwodwo Abban’s letter which was also copied to the Director of Education at the Ghana School of Law and the SRC President of the School also wants an extension of the period set for remarking the scripts of the failed students.

Another 177 students have been referred in one or two papers, Myjoyonline.com has learnt. This represents 81% failure for 2017.
Out of 474 students who sat for the 2017-2018 final exams, only 91 students representing 19% were deemed to have passed and will be called to the Bar.
