BI Handelshøyskolen topped the statistics in Oslo and Akershus with 12.3 percent in the spring of 2016.

In the spring of 2016, 12.3 of the students on campus failed, according to figures from the database for statistics on higher education, writes Universitas.

While the failure rate at the University of Oslo was 6.08 during the same period, and there were only 0.56 percent at The Art Academy.

BI’s Head of Administration Kjersti Gummerson writes in an email to Universitas that statistics show normal and small fluctuations, and the failure percent rate is an indication that “mandatory” requirements were made on the exam.

She denies that the so-called “progression requirements” do not work and writes that the percentage who meet them has increased from 81 to 86 percent.

She also refers to the measure “First Year Experience,” which is to improve the academic and social integration of the freshmen students.

– Despite this, there is are those students who don’t settle in or have the motivation it takes to complete the program to earn a degree from BI.
