On November 28, after a long procedure of debate and negotiations, the student society, the Council for Presidents of Private Universities, and the Ministry of Education reached a consensus that to abolish entrance fees for private universities. It was a compromise that failed to materialize on October 20 when the private universities called for the increase of tuition fees as compensation for reduction of entrance fees, which broke the consent made on October 13.
 
However, after three additional meetings for negotiation, the Ministry of Education has officially stated on November 28 that the agreement has been made on the phase-out of entrance fees. The final agreement was that the universities will decrease entrance fees in stages over the next four or five years depending on the amount of them, until only 20 percent of the status quo is left. The remaining 20 percent will be paid through state scholarship, for all freshmen students.
 
However, the consensus leaves much to be desired as the student society has failed to fulfill its initial goal of repealing entrance fees immediately. Acknowledging the limitation, the universities promised to open the details of entrance fee usage, and the consultative group included articles which enable universities to advance the date of abolishment.
