Economics students fit in a last-minute study session for a final exam at the College of Education for Women at Baghdad University, Baghdad, Iraq, Saturday morning, May 29, 2010. Final exams started for tens of thousands of students at Iraq's largest university Saturday. The College of Education for women has 4,000 students required to take a total of 14 exams. During the war and occupation, thousands of students and professors fled Iraq, and problems persist. Most Iraqis can expect six hours or less of electricity per day, unless they can afford a private generator. Traveling to and from the university is complicated by checkpoints and almost daily explosions.
