In Brief: Health students continue protest

First-year students from the University of Health Sciences who failed their exams and were denied re-enrolment continued their protest this week, demanding a second chance. Student Dum Dina, 19, said students will raise their voices using loudspeakers and will beat on metal barrels to gain attention. Officials invited students to retake the exams, but they refused. Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan told the Post the university should hold firm, decsribing the students as “not fit to enter the second year”.
