NOUN Returns to Former Mode of Examination

National Open University of Nigeria has disclosed the cancellation of the recently approved restructuring of its examinations semester by semester.

The Registrar of NOUN, Felix Edoka, in a statement by the Director, Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Sheme, in Abuja on Thursday, disclosed this in a memo to all staff and students of the university.

He noted that the decision was reached during the 87th meeting of the University Management Committee held in Abuja on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

According to the statement, “The meeting, which was chaired by the new Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Femi Peters, discussed a number of issues, including the conduct of university examinations.

“Edoka said the new policy on the conduct of the university examinations, which restricted its process to semester by semester, has been cancelled with immediate effect.

“He announced that the university’s examination process has now been reverted to the former method, where students will be examined in all courses during examinations. He added that student admission and registration would now be a continuous process in keeping with the university’s policy of flexibility and accessibility.

“The registrar gave an assurance that the management was desirous of tackling to the barest minimum all identified challenges facing the conduct of the university examinations, admissions and registration. He appealed for calm, patience and understanding of all stakeholders in the business of moving the university forward.”
