Ministry releases results of university entrance exams


Pupils at a senior high school in Iraklio, on the island of Crete, check the results of the nationwide university entrance exams after they were released by the country’s Education Ministry on Friday. Results were put up at schools across the country, but candidates can also check their marks on the ministry website. More than 103,000 pupils competed for almost 70,000 places at one of the country’s state-run universities or technical colleges (TEI) this year. Education Minister Nikos Filis said on Thursday that the exams were "a great success."
