Information on whether a student who failed
her/his law examinations at the Université de Yaoundé
would remain a registered student at the university is currently
unavailable to the DIRB in Ottawa.
However, according to the educational
counsellor at the Embassy of the Republic of Cameroon in
Washington, DC, in order to register in law at the University of
Yaoundé, a person must have completed his or her secondary
school education and received the General Certificate of Education
(Advanced Level) if anglophone, and the Baccalauréat if a
francophone (2 Dec. 1994). The counsellor indicated that a student
can withdraw for any period during the law studies program and
remain a registered student. As a student, a person only needs to
have the required credits to graduate (ibid.). The DIRB is unable
to corroborate this information at the present time.
This response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does
not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular
claim to refugee status or asylum.
