Apparently there was mass failure at the Nigerian Law School this year. The Nigerian Law School recently released the 2013/2014 August result, and it was a Tsunami. Out of the 5,000 candidates who registered, only about 2,000 passed. Meaning that about 3,000 students failed the bar exam, the highest failure the Nigerian Law School has witnessed since its 50 years of existence.
Many of the students are angry and frustrated. They say they don’t believe the mass failure is the fault of the students and are now asking for a review of their results. An affected student who reached out to LIB said;
“People have worked their butt off for this exam, people have ran literally mad for this exam, these same people have invested their life savings for this exam, people who lost their parents prior to this exam had to muster the strength to write this exam and the Director general of the Nigerian law school who is responsible for the this mass failure doesn’t see reasons with these people. He said he’s raising a standard but all we see is a high standard of failure!”
Another student said
“Do we say 3000 students payed N300,000 not counting expenses for a year, feeding,books, then prepared to fail? We are calling for a review”
