House approves bill removing college entrance exam fees

The House of Representatives approved the bill that would remove all fees for the college entrance examinations in state universities. Members of the House passed on third and final reading on Monday night House Bill 6577, which requires all state universities and colleges and local colleges and universities offering degree-granting programs to provide free college entrance examinations to graduating high school students, college entrants or transferees who are applying for college admission.

Meanwhile, private colleges and universities  are required to provide free entrance examinations to under privileged public high school students whose parents live below the poverty line, and who belong to the top 10 percent of the graduating batch. This is good news for all the parents and underprivileged  but deserving high school graduates. Kudos to all the authors of this bill!
