  1. We need investigative journalist on this issue! becouse the exam was very subjective essay type for example bevioural test part was one question with 5 subquestions essay type on current situation of corruption which is very subjective to evaluate and it looks bias in marking as demonstrated by in some section all score>60 however in some section Almos all or majority score<50!

  2. lack of accoutablity and Lack of transparency is a challege to verfiy our exam result becouse AAU refuse to show the exam paper to verfiy it! and AAU officials informed us external body marked evaluated the exam papers, so they claim they are not responsible for it so how the exam they set is evaluated by an other person it is paradox!
