The Federal University Oye-Ekiti has fixed a new date for the computer-based examinations for its students by one week after the initial postponement

According to the school management, the postponement was aimed at addressing issues raised by students and other stakeholders concerning the conduct of the exercise.

The Registrar, Mufutau Ibrahim, stated that the university management had begun efforts to address what had led to the students’ anxiety and agitation over the computer-based examination.

He, however, dispelled rumour of casualty making rounds on social media in a statement

Ibrahim disclosed this in a statement. He said that the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Abayomi Fasina, was physically present at the ICT centre, the venue of the examination.

“The VC has set up a committee to address all the issues identified in this regard – from planning/scheduling to allegations of extortion made against some security personnel,” he said.

The registrar added, “The university management noted the issues that have arisen in the course of administering the CBT as we make academic progress with the first semester examinations; and strongly express regret at the turn of events.

“To this end, all CBT examinations have been postponed for one week as an immediate and interim measure. For the avoidance of doubt, all pen-on-paper first semester examinations would go on as scheduled.”

“Thankfully, no casualty was recorded as the VC and the management team as well as the University health centre personnel were fully available to handle emergencies. We sincerely regret any inconveniences these may have caused,” he stated.
