Azerbaijan, Ganja, 29 January / corr. Trend V. Mammadov/ Certain marks in the secondary school certificates of Azerbaijan have been marked higher than it should have been, the State Commission for the Students Admission (SCSA) said.
"The Commission has drawn up a list of 3,560 secondary school graduates who had achieved good marks and the list will be presented to the Ministry of Education for examination," Maleyka Abbaszadeh, the head of the SCSA said in the regional meeting in Ganja.
The Commission has repeatedly reported that the marks on the certificate are overestimated but the Ministry of Education did not accept these accusations. The university applicants from Minghachevir achieved top scores during their entrance exams in 2007. The university applicants from Goychai and Ganja held second and third places respectively.
The first study showed that only 10% of the school graduates who had been given good grades could prove that their grades were objective, Abbaszadeh said.
Ganja is situated 365 west of Baku.
