The education ministry on Monday eased the rules on Japanese university entrance exams for graduates of 19 Brazilian schools in Japan.

Students at the 19 Brazilian schools study an 11-year course covering the same curriculum as they would in Brazil. But as students at Japanese schools must complete a 12-year course, the students of the Brazilian schools have been made to study another year at Japanese language schools or other educational institutions before being permitted to apply to a university.
