Earlier: Poly Ibadan Postpones Exams Over Students’ Protest
Management of The Polytechnic, Ibadan has postponed the first-semester examination for the 2019/2020 academic session, earlier scheduled for October 12 to October 19.
The examination is to be written by the HND II students in the Faculties of Business and Communication Studies, and Environmental Studies of the Polytechnic.
Meanwhile, students of the institution took to the streets on Monday to express their displeasure with the directives of the school management which they said was unfair.
According to the students, they have been experiencing difficulty in tuition payment and a faulty school portal which has reportedly hindered them from registering for their first-semester examination.
According to the Registrar of the institution, Mrs. Modupe Fawale, the postponement is to enable students, who were unable to meet the registration and tuition payment deadline to do so.
She directed students experiencing registration challenges to the accredited ICT centres while encouraging them to observe all COVID-19 protocols.
Mrs. Fawale further advised students to observe examination etiquettes as any form of examination malpractice will be sanctioned.
