KYOTO – Thirty-three students attended an entrance ceremony Sunday at Kyoto Sangyo University, three months behind their classmates after the school rejected them because of errors in marking their entrance exams.
“I am very sorry for your delayed entrance,” university President Toyoo Sakai said at the ceremony. “I expect you to do the best.”
According to the university, an additional 110 applicants were accepted after re-examination of their entrance exam results. Of that group, 33 wanted to enroll at Kyoto Sangyo.
The university has decided to accept the credits they obtained at other colleges during the three months.
School officials and teachers will cover the tens of millions of yen in admission fees and tuitions paid by the 33 to other colleges or cram schools for the period, officials said.
