Women finally beat men in medical exams after Japanese University stops rigging test

Last year, the private university, along with at least eight other Japanese medical schools, were found to have rigged their exam system over the last decade to give first-time male test takers an advantage over women and repeat applicants.
When the revelation came to light, the dean of Juntendo justified the practice by saying women were already at an advantage due to their natural mental maturity. “Women mature faster mentally than men, and their communication ability is also higher,” Hiroyuki Daida said at a news conference. “In some ways, this was a measure to help male applicants.”
The university has now corrected its exams for 2019 and added female teachers to the board that interviews prospective students.
