The Minister of Higher Education Nkandu Luo says Government will starting in 2018 introduce Entrance Examinations for students before they can be admitted in colleges and Universities.
Professor Luo says the move will help institutions to admit students who passed genuinely without any leakages at grade twelve level.
The Minister says Government want to have students who will take learning seriously.
Professor Luo was speaking in Mkushi- this morning when she called on District Commissioner Luke Mwamba.
And Professor Luo says appropriate action will be taken on students who will be found wanting from the riot that took place at the university of Zambia in Lusaka.
She says Government would like to clean up higher institutions of learning of hooliganism.
Professor Luo has since urged parents to help counsel and discipline their Children before they get into learning institutions.
And Professor Luo says Government will come up with a deliberate policy that will cater for rural population on Bursaries.
The minister says she is aware that a big number of students benefiting from bursaries are those in urban areas .
Professor Luo says this is in line with President Edgar Lungu’s directive that no one should be left behind in sharing the national cake.
