Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) are kicking against the management of the school’s decision to conduct End of Semester Examinations electronically amid the COVID-19.
The students are rejecting the online examination for varied reasons including financial and psychological instability because of the existing pandemic.
Management of the Institute on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, issued a communique containing the revised academic calendar of the school for the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic year which indicated that online exams will be held for the students as one of the modalities.
According to the school authorities, the decision was taken by the Academic Board “in response to the government’s directive to all universities as part of emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic to halt lectures as a result of the need to observe social distancing protocols”.
What do you make of this?
