TOKYO MEDICAL SCHOOL CURES ENTRY BIAS.
One of Japan's most prestigious medical schools has promised to make amends after it was discovered that it deliberately altered entrance exam scores to restrict the number of female medical students and to increase the number of male medical students.
Tokyo Medical University has admitted that it manipulated all entrance exam results starting in 2006--and possibly earlier--according to findings released by lawyers involved in an investigation that confirmed recent reports in Japanese media.
School officials said the discrimination should not have occurred and have vowed to prevent discriminatory practices in the future. The university says it will consider retroactively admitting the female candidates who would have been admitted if the school had not reduced women's entrance exam scores by 20 percent.
