(ANSA) - Rome, September 4 - Italy's students' union on
Tuesday organised a flash mob outside the country's higher
education institutions in protest over limited admission to
certain courses.
The protest coincided with the start of countrywide entrance
exams for courses in medicine and dentistry, which contemplate
10,173 and around 900 admissions respectively.
Overall some 77,000 Italian and foreign students have
registered to sit the exams.
"Today thousands of students will sit the entrance exams and
only one in eight will be able to realise their dream," said
Union coordinator Michele Orezzi.
"Not only will they not be free to choose their future, but
they will also have to take a test that for years has proven to
be fallacious both in terms of method and content".
The students' union has also said it will provide oversight
to ensure the exams are carried out correctly and assist
students in the event of irregularities.
On Monday the consumer watchdog Codacons called on Italian
Premier Mario Monti and the Education Minister Francesco Profumo
to scrap the admissions exams and make access to university
free.
