“Gandul” reported, in its yesterday edition, that a private university in Iasi adapted its methodology for this year to allow young people who failed to obtain the baccalaureate degree to enrol in the university, provided they present proof of having obtained the degree by the end of the second university year. Officials in the Education Ministry say the provision acts in defiance of the law. Sources within the ministry stated, for “Gandul”, that a team of experts from the Higher Education Department would be sent, on Monday, to the university in question, to demand an explanation. The decision adopted by the private university came in response to the low rate of students passing the baccalaureate exam this year, a mere 44 pc. The university offers three degrees: Dentistry, Dentistry Technician and Communication Sciences, for annual tuition fees ranging between EUR 600 and 1,200.
