“Serious violations were revealed in 3 universities (Azerbaijan Beynalkhalg (International) University, Tefekkur University, and Azerbaijan Public and Political University) during the monitoring of the examinations in private universities,” said Elnur Mammadov. “Deans and pro-rectors (vice presidents), even the Rector in Azerbaijan Public Political University, interfered in the examinations in these universities. No serious violations happened in other private universities, but the results of the examinations were weak.”
E.Mammadov added that monitoring revealed that the problems in state universities are not less than in private universities. Excluding two universities (the State Management Academy under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and the Azerbaijan Languages University), the percentage of students unhappy with problems in other universities ranged from 55-90%.
Education Ministry representatives Enver Imanov and Ilyar Vahabov, Executive Director of the Fund to Fight Against Corruption Vasif Movsumov, and university students participated in the event.
