UPSA Student to write Virtual Exams despite the Unavailability of E-Learning Materials and Inaccessibility for Some students

The authorities of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), Accra-Ghana has issued a press statement/ Notice to all students both far and near to use their Online/E-Learning Platforms to write this year’s end of Semester Exams despite the unavailability/quality access to the various E-Learning platforms provided by the school.

In a statement cited by maxtymelive.com, the school’s Academic Affairs Directorate says that the end of semester examinations shall be conducted online based on the scheduled examination timetable. They further explained that the examination shall be a TAKE HOME-EXAMS (THE’s) or assignment.

The mode of exams shall be prepared by the Lead Lecturer and submitted to the Heads of Department by Monday, April 2020 and the maximum time allocated for this particular exam shall not exceed 48hours.

This situation/Notice has raised eyebrows on social media and most of the students are really against the idea because most of them feel that its an agenda of #INEQUALITY because some students are in rural areas and do not have access to the internet, laptops nor none of the platforms provided by the school is working properly.

Most students haven’t even paid their school fees thereby not allowing them to have access to the E-learning portal and amidst the Lockdown, they can not even go to the banks to pay their fees and even when that is allowed, there would be a rush hour at the banks that could also lead to the spread of the Pandemic COVID-19 virus. Some students also are of the view that since the lockdown, that they were asked to go home, they haven’t had lectures in most of their courses, therefore they can not be able to write the exams.

People are also agitating that, in times like this, they are not Psyched for exams due to the coronavirus because most people are afraid of how it has become so alarming.
