Minimum entry requirement to universities and colleges have been reviewed favouring most candidates who sat for their exams.
This happened after it emerged that most students are locked out of their dream careers for not meeting certain subject grades.
Experts argue that some subjects needed for certain courses are highly weighted, yet they are not critical in training, while in other cases, some crucial subjects needed are omitted or less emphasized.
This has led to many students missing their dream courses because the subject clusters, which spell out minimum requirements for various courses were lasy reviewed some years ago.
The people who will benefit most if the placement criteria is revised will be teachers and students pursuing agricultural courses.
For instance, students studying agriculture-related courses are currently required to have C+ in Biology and Chemistry.
In the new proposals, however, this requirement has been reduced to a C plain for both subjects. Agriculture (C+) has also been introduced as an alternative to the C plain in Biology.
