The Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA) Dr Flavia Sekubuge says they will not reduce their standards in the single exit exam for would-be surgeons.

Speaking to Refilwe Moloto, Sekubuge says dropping the standards and let out subpar specialists would endanger the public.

CMSA launched an investigation to out why would-be surgeons across five universities failed a standard final examination.

All of the candidates from the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), University of Cape Town (UCT), University of Pretoria, Walter Sisulu University and University of the Free State failed the exam.

Only candidates from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University and Stellenbosch University passed.

Sekubuge says they are currently in Limpopo conducting listening sessions.
