“Seminary Students Elevate Their Learning,” Ensign, November 2015, 144
Seminary students are responding well to elevated graduation requirements implemented last year. Recently released figures show that 81 percent of enrolled students passed the end-of-semester assessment, attendance increased from 71 to 77 percent, and nearly 80 percent of students met reading requirements.
The new requirements allow teachers to emphasize key doctrines in their teaching, while allowing students to focus on those same doctrines.
Approximately 400,000 young men and young women are enrolled in seminary around the world.
