International students of the University of Ghana who are currently out of the country can heave a sigh of relief as school authorities say that provision will be made for them to take their supplementary re-sit exams in real time, as their local counterparts.
This was indicated in the University’s response to students who were unhappy over the decision to hold the exams on-site.
Whilst the University has stressed its resolve against an off-site exam, it made an exception for international students who are currently out of the country.
“Given the prevailing circumstances, provision will be made for International Students to take the exams in real time, as their local counterparts, in their home countries,” a statement signed by the Acting Director of the Academic Affairs Director, Mrs. Christy Badu reads.
In view of complains by some students over the mode of taking the exams, the University has asked them to defer their exams if they are not comfortable with the decision.
Such students have been asked to write to the Academic Affairs Directorate.
“Any student who may not be comfortable with the safety and precautionary arrangements put in place by the University may opt out, after providing official notification of such, and take the examination at the next available opportunity”
University authorities have also reiterated their committed to ensuring that its examinations are not compromised whilst securing the safety of members of the University community amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
“The University of Ghana is committed to ensuring that the integrity of these examinations is not compromised, while at the same time securing the safety of students, staff and faculty. As earlier communication, the University as always, will abide by all prescribed COVID-19 protocols and would expect students who come to campus to do same,” the statement adds
