Management of the Central University College in Accra, has rescheduled the commencement of online examinations in the school to May 25, 2020.
The postponement comes after concerns from students over the late release of the online examination timetable as well as protests against a decision by school authorities to collect full payment of school fees before students would be allowed to partake in the online examinations.
But after series of engagements with the Students Representative Council, school management has reconsidered its demands for full payment of fees before students are allowed to partake in the exams.
In a statement signed by the school’s Registrar, Emil Afenyo, announced that the university has shifted “the deadline for fee collection to 1st June, 2020” with all penalties for late payment of school fees for the current semester fees waived.
Universities prepare to commence online examinations
Students in some tertiary institutions in the country are getting ready to undertake their end of semester exams online.
These tertiary institutions, including the University of Ghana, have already released their online examination timetables and announced guidelines for the conduct of the exams.
Universities in the country resorted to continue academic work for the rest of the semester online after President Akufo-Addo ordered the closure of all school as part of measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country.
