Gender Bias In Japanese Medical College !
By Madhurie Singh, August 09, 2018
Imagine if a progressive country like Japan is admitting that for decades they were purposely manipulating the marks of women candidates to ensure more men became doctors, out country is much better!
Tokyo Medical School has been manipulating and giving low scores to women in the entrance exams since 2006.
It said it would consider retroactively admitting those who otherwise would have passed the exams, although it did not explain how it would do so.
“We sincerely apologise for the serious wrongdoing involving entrance exams that has caused concern and trouble for many people and betrayed the public’s trust,” the school’s managing director, Tetsuo Yukioka, said at a news conference. He denied any previous knowledge of the score manipulation and said he was never involved.
“I suspect that there was a lack of sensitivity to the rules of modern society, in which women should not be treated differently because of their gender,” he said.
