The National Universities
Commission ( NUC ),the body
charged with the responsibility
of monitoring the activities of
universities in the country, has
banned the conduct of re-sit
examinations in Nigerian
universities.
The NUC , in a statement by its
Chief Information Officer, Mrs
Bukola Olatunji, in Abuja, on
Wednesday, frowned on the
discovery that some universities
conduct supplementary
examination for their students,
in addition to regular semester
examinations.
The commission therefore
warned that the conduct of such
examinations was in violation of
extant rules and regulations,
andurged all universities
involved to stop the practice
henceforth or face sanction.
In her words, “The attention of
the NUC has been drawn to the
fact that some universities
conduct supplementary
examination for their students,
in addition to regular semester
examinations… This contradicts
the Course Credit System in
operation in the Nigerian
university system, which has no
provision for re-sit or
supplementary examinations.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the
Course Credit System provides
that courses should be taken on
semester basis and a course
failed in one semester should be
carried over to the following
year and to be re-taken at the
next available opportunity.”
Universities that do this, take
note!
