Statistics show over half of students fail to graduate

Morocco's Minister of Education Mohamed Hassad has revealed statistics showing that more than half of students enrolled do not graduate, reports MENAFN.

The figures indicate that no more than 42% of the students enrolled in Moroccan universities graduate, whereas the majority, an eye-opening 58%, drop out before obtaining their bachelor degree.

The normal period for obtaining the bachelor degree in Morocco is three years and requires the completion of all the units or modules for each year. In case students fail to complete some or all the units, they are obliged to complete them in the next year. The ministry of education's report shows that only 13% of university students in Morocco complete the course in the first three years. The graduation rate after four years and five years of study is 15% and 7%, respectively.
