The coronavirus outbreak(COVID19) has caused chaos in institutions particularly as to how they operate and discharge their mandates. The Educational Institutions are not excluded.
Students of the University of Professional Studies have kicked against their end of semester ‘E-exams’ which is set to start next month.
A statement from the UPSA administration, released on April,14 saw the academic branch of the administration indicating how the school will be leveraging on the e-learning platform to organize an end of semester academic exam for the students as a way of adhering to the directives set out by the President in this COVID19 time.
A group, ‘Concerned students of UPSA’ seem to disagree with the School’s decision as they outlined vivid reasons protesting against the School’s ‘E-exams’ decision.
According to the concerned students of UPSA, most students ever since the ‘E-learning’ platform began do not have smart phones and Pc’s even while at home, making it more tough for some students to access the e-learning system.
Hence, the introduction of the ‘E-exams’ will add up to the plight as many students will be unable to take part in the exam which in turn will affect students academic performance.
The concerned students are demanding the administration make a quick withdrawal of its statement.
Meanwhile, earlier reports suggesting that some students have been denied access to the ‘E-learning’ platform is still hanging, and authorities of the university of professional studies have paid death ear to the situation.
