Demonstrators contended that no nation globally necessitates a passing rate as elevated as 70%. Interrogations arose regarding the distinct treatment of international graduates concerning this matter.

Backing the movement, the progenitors of these scholars also participated in the protest. They expressed their worries about channeling all their savings into their offspring’s’ ambitions, solely to witness them encountering hindrances in procuring their licenses.

The demonstrating scholars overtly questioned the entity responsible for the verdict to heighten the passing scores for the entrance examination.
