Namibia National Students Organisation President, Simon Taapopi said the decision to increase admission points to some institutions of higher learning should be reversed because it will put more young people on the streets. The Namibia Press Agency reports that Taapopi was reacting to a recent announcement by the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture that admission requirements for some tertiary institutions will increase as of the 2022 academic year under the revised curriculum. The notable change is that the University of Namibia has increased its points from 25 to 27.
