Settling the Sexist Score

After admitting to rigging admissions to ensure more men became doctors, Tokyo Medical University will accept dozens of women whose test scores were marked down to limit the intake of female students.

The practice took place for more than a decade, intended to curb women’s entry into the field on grounds that female doctors spur staff shortages if they leave the profession to have children.
In this year’s entrance exams, 20+ points were added to men’s scores unless they had already failed the test 4 times. It’s unclear how the university will deal with candidates admitted with padded scores.
