The Students’ Representative Council of the University of Ghana has petitioned University management over the on-site supplementary re-sit examination.
The SRC says that the arrangement will disadvantage students who are currently not in the country but have registered in the hope that the examination will be carried out online.
“This means foreign students and other students who are outside the country will be deprived of such right since they cannot travel in and outside the country. The net effect is that, final year students who are unable to partake in the exams due to one or all of the above reasons will not graduate; a situation which will be so dire,” part of the petition reads
Among other challenges, the SRC says that reports from some students indicate that the adherence to COVID-19 protocols would restrain candidates who are in isolation to return to campus notwithstanding the additional cost of transportation this mode of undertaking the exam will bring students.
In a statement sighted by UniversNews, the SRC pleaded with the management to reintroduce the Sakai Learning and Management system to forestall students from commuting to campus over the exams.
The also asked for the timetable for the examinations to be released “early enough to enable students prepare adequately”.
