The rigging of the Japanese medical school entrance exam to favor men is now history. Subsequently, it turns out 26.38 percent of female applicants passed the exam compared to only 21.79 percent of male applicants.
Furthermore, men were accepted at Toyko Medical School at 2.02 times the rate of women in 2018. However, in 2019 the narrative changed. Following the disclosure of the exam rigging, men were admitted at 0.87 times the rate of women. In other words, women were admitted at a higher rate.
