  1. congratulations to the toptonotchers and passers but 34 % national passing- what a waste of many things.

  2. Yes, it is indeed a low passing rate. Why is it that the standards in the schools are much lower than the professional standards? Thanks for dropping by.

  3. CMU passing percentage 85.71%
