Following a minor delay, the University of Liberia (UL) has announced the date of its first entrance exam. The institution has faced severe strike actions and protests on its main campus on Capitol Hill in recent years for a variety of causes, ranging from pay disparities to a conducive teaching and learning atmosphere.
Despite President Weah’s announcement a few years ago that the institution will provide free tuition, the university is in financial trouble. Filtered facilities and poor sanitary conditions on many campuses continue to be complaints from students, particularly ladies. Before beginning a new semester, students have demanded that the filtered circumstances improve. Negotiations with both students and the leadership of the faulty association have been hosted by the government and the administration of the UL. Because the issues remain unaddressed, it is unclear whether there is any agreement on them.
According to a UL press release, the reconstituted Standing Committee of the UL Testing & Evaluation Center, under the new chairmanship of Professor Ezekiel Hallie, Dean, School of Pharmacy, announced that beginning next Monday, May 9, to Saturday, June 18, is the period set for registering for the 1st Entrance Exam & Aptitude Test.
The public notice said the 1st entrance exam will be administered on Saturday, June 25, 2022, while the dates for the aptitude test will be announced subsequently.
UL said the mode of registration is optional: online and in-person. “The link directing the online option will be made available subsequently”, the notice said.
Additional information regarding the entire registration process, including method of payment, test venues, and publication of results, among others, will also be announced later on the UL website and other outlets.
