Policy on Deferment of Examinations

The Senate considered and deliberated on the report from the Committee on Deferment of Examinations. 

It noted that in the spirit of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) and the flexibility that comes with the mode, a student is qualified for deferment of examination(s).  The deferment permits a temporary postponement of participation in examination(s).

The highlights of the report include and not limited to the under listed:

Revised University policy on re-marking of scripts and compilation of results

(i.)   Appeal against examination  results should be done within 30 days from the date of publication of results as uploaded on Students’ Portal;

(ii.)  All applications for re- marking should be addressed to the Registrar through the Study Centre Directors and copies forwarded to the Dean of the School concerned and the Chairman, University Examinations Committee
