Universities accused of cheating

University candidates have accused universities of manipulating entrance exam results, although the institutions themselves claim that it cannot happen.

The dean of the medical faculty in Martin, Eva Rozborilová, explained that their system made such manipulations impossible: "Each student is given a PIN code, which stays with them for the whole study. An hour and a half after the entrance exams, the results are put on the internet, accessible via the PIN code. Only then does the computer link them back to the names."

Despite these assurances, some university staff claim that pressure is put on them to pass particular students.
