Another Dendai Exam Slipup

Ten students have been informed that they passed the entrance exams to a Tokyo university, in some cases more than a year after being told they had failed. Yesterday's announcement by Tokyo Denki University affects three students who took the exam for the engineering department before the 2002 academic year and seven this year. The error was discovered in July and was attributed to the computer program that assesses exam results. It was also revealed that a similar problem in 2002 with the English exam for the School of Information Environment led to eight students receiving their passes late that year. The university say they did not make the mistake public at that time as it had been satisfactorily resolved with the education ministry.
