PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (September 10, 1997 - PACNEWS)--- The University of Papua New Guinea is considering requiring entrance exams for new students because of concern over the unsatisfactory literacy level of incoming students.

University Vice-Chancellor Dr. Rodney Hills announced the plan during National Literacy Week at the University's Waigani campus in Port Moresby.

Dr. Hills says the university is becoming more and more concerned about the literacy problem and believes requiring some kind of university entrance examination now is necessary.

He says the planned new procedure will weed out, at an early stage, those students who are not likely to succeed at the tertiary education level.
