Students promised make-up exams by FUOYE VC still waiting
The Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, is yet to conduct make-up exams for certain category of students despite assurances.
One of the criteria for writing an examination in FUOYE is registering for the courses online and fulfilling financial regulations as stipulated by the school.
Following the university’s decision to prevent students who had not paid or completed their school fees from writing the first-semester examination, some student stakeholders led a demonstration to protest this decision.
Consequently, the university extended the grace to pay the school fees till the second semester. Also, the Vice Chancellor promised that a make-up examination would be conducted for affected victims who missed some exams.
However, as at the time of filing this report, the affected students confirmed that the examination hasn’t been conducted.
Speaking to CAMPUS REPORTER, Steve Victory, one of the affected students, said “the school promised to hold make-up exam for those of us that were affected and they haven’t done it. I complained to my lecturer and she said I will have to take the course again 200level first semester. I feel bad about the situation of things and am not encouraged’, he concluded.”
According to another victim identified as Gabriel Tosin, “I was even in school on the day that was fixed last semester but we couldn’t do it.”
She also said she complained to her lecturer and she was told to re-do the course the next semester. “I am not happy with the development because I don’t want to redo the course,” she concluded.
Speaking to CAMPUS REPORTER, the University PRO, Godfrey Bakji, said he is not aware of the matter and redirected the correspondent to the Dean of Student Affairs.
According to the Dean of Student Affairs, Dosu Malomo “you will soon hear from the University and they will be doing the make-up exam.”
