Says '1 million students excluded' as entrance tests begin

(ANSA) - Rome, September 4 - Testing has begun for access to limited-number university degree courses across Italy for the 2018-2019 academic year.
    Medical school entrance exams have begun, which for the past 18 years have seen the highest number of test-takers: 60 questions to be answered in 100 minutes. From Wednesday to October 26 there will be the other tests: veterinary sciences, architecture, healthcare sciences and education. Students are meanwhile conducting a protest at universities and the Italian University Students Union (UDU) said that "the limit on students registering for specific courses of study will exclude a million students from university and it must be eliminated".
