The Students Representative Council of the University of Ghana is unhappy with the insistence of school authorities to hold its supplementary re-sit examinations for first semester courses on-site despite concerns from students.
Interim SRC president, Fianko Ntow, in an interview with UniversNews said that the student body expected school management to reconsider their decision because ‘we made our stance clear on that’
Although the University is showing strong determination to hold the exam on-site, the SRC says that it will continue pushing until they get a favourable response.
Fianko Ntow, however, says that the SRC is yet to properly engage school management on the way forward on the matter.
“The essence of our earlier petition was to draw their attention to issues that accompanied their initial directives. Of course this was not what we expected from management considering the fact that we made our stance clear on that. However we are yet to properly engage them to look at the way forward,” Fianko Ntow said.
“Defer your re-sit exams if you can’t come to campus” – Management to students
Management of the University on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, responded to complaints by some students that the decision to hold the exams on-site will be disadvantageous to many.
In a statement signed by the Acting Director of the Academic Affairs Director, Mrs. Christy Badu, the University announced to students the option of deferring the exam if they cannot make it to campus for the exams.
Regarding foreign students who were not in the country, the University said that provision will be made for them to take the exams in real time as their local counterparts, in their home countries.
