Kyosandai Admits Another Exam Error

Kyoto Sangyo University announced at the weekend that there had been a mistake in marking this year's English entrance examinations. As a result, of the 2,838 students who sat the test on February 5 for the humanities department, 2,033 had a change in score. An additional 110 students were given pass grades, of whom 21 have already entered a different department or passed an alternative test for the university. Compensation will be offered to the others. No action will be taken in the cases of six students who passed due to the mistake. The error - in a reading comprehension exercise - was found this month in a collection of the university's test papers by staff at a juku (cram school). It is the fifth entrance exam error discovered at "Kyosandai" this year.
