The Federal University of Technology(FUT), Minna is the Top 50 best Universities in Nigeria and also Africa at large.
With the Covid-19 Global pandemic obstructing and causing a pause to all academic activities in the nation, it went extra mile in creating a facility suitable for the students following the Covid-19 Guidelines.
Due to the late resumption of it school activities for this session it created a way of Concising the Academic year with the implementation of converting most written courses of over 200 registration or more to the Electronic Form of writing it Examination normally called E-exams by the student, But the incident occurring have kept many of on the student at edge, Giving them the reason to take to consideration if the school authorities have the interest if student at heart.
The Exams has been going on with ease and every protocols on guard for any misconducts by any student. But the story is different on this day 30th of March,2021 where the student were not allowed to partake in the exams Due to reason we consider not considerate enough.
This event occurred to student who where to have their exams at 8 O’Clock AM of that day. With the difficulty in the transport system and the population of student having their exams at that time most student weren’t able to make it exactly at that time, though it really wasn’t of great importance since the school understand and has being going with it since the exams started, but it was different this day when student where prevented from entering to the convocation square for them to go to the E-center all with the reason that they where late for the exams and therefore won’t be allowed in to write the exams.
The E-exams officials gave a baseless and non-solid reason as that the students where into some examination malpractice that is, given out questions and answers to student out that where situated at a particular point. Though such accusation has no evidence to back up their claims at all, and they have acted on a mere observation or certain belief without proof.
“This is the 2nd time this kind of thing is happening in this school”
Words of a 300level student of the university, that is to say this isn’t the 1st time such event has taken place. But with an institution that put it students first it shouldn’t be a thought to be considered upon to restrict it students from taking their exams.
In other words the institution should come up with some resolution for the benefaction of the students.
What is your point of View to this and what do you think should be done?
