Universities cleared to take in private school students

The Attorney-General Office’s legal service in Cyprus has cleared the decision by two state universities to invite private school graduates to apply for any remaining vacant places using the results of their international exams, writes Gina Agapiou for the Cyprus Mail.

The legal service said the decision was not in violation of university regulations relating to the Pancyprian examinations, and that both universities had acted lawfully.
