KAMPALA-UGANDA/NEWSDAY:Makerere University students are set to sit for their end of semester one exams starting September 13, according to
Alfred Maskye, the academic registrar.
Masakye said in a statement sent to Newsday and dated September 7 that at the time the second lockdown was announced on June 18, students were sitting for their exams.
“The University Senate and Council have approved the alternative modes of assessment for the completion of Semester One 2020/2021 examinations. Academic Boards have met, reviewed, selected and submitted the most appropriate alternative modes of assessment for the respective programmes/course units,” Masakye said.
The University has scheduled the Examinations to start on 13th September, 2021 and run up to 30th September, 2021.
“First Year and Continuing Students who have pending Semester One examinations are informed accordingly and should prepare to sit the examinations,” Masakye said.
He however advised students to whose school fees payment obligations were not fulfilled by the time of the University closure to seek guidance.
“Students who have not completed payments of relevant fees should contact the respective College Bursars to be guided on the new payment procedures. Those who have not registered should contact the College Registrars for guidance,” Masakye said.
He said colleges/schools have drawn-up and published detailed examination schedules and timetables.
College Registrars working with Deans, Heads of Departments and Examination Coordinators have been asked to display and publicise the detailed examination timetables.
“In addition, Deans/ Heads of Department/College Registrars should provide relevant information and sensitise students on these examination modalities” Masakye said.
But the exams will be online.
