B-R-E-A-K-I-N-G: UniUyo Students Curse School Management Over Flopped CBT Exams

Rita Enemuru, Reporting

STUDENTS of the University of Uyo, on Friday, cursed the school management in anger for embarking on digitizing General Studies (GST) examinations without putting proper measures in place.

The school had notified students offering GST courses that the examinations would be digitized with proper measures in place on the first day of August.

The examinations, which were scheduled to run for seven days, however, flopped on the first day as hundreds of students, who were scheduled to write on the first day, left the exams venue angrily without taking the exams.

The Director of GST had earlier promised 100 level and 200 level students that the exams would run without any hitch a week to the exams.

Some students, who angrily spoke to Stonix News said that they didn’t understand why the school would venture into a project without proper measures put in place.

One Mfon Okon said: “I don’t know what is wrong with this school. Why would they want to turn GST to CBT when they know that they don’t have what it takes to implement it?

“I was scheduled to write this exam by eight in the morning and I have been in this school till now waiting for them to repair the network problems that they said was wrong with the computer but nothing.”

Another student, Kenneth Chibuzor, said that the university would have stuck to the manual way of writing the exams instead of stressing students unnecessarily.

“When I saw the news of the digitization plans, I feared that this would happened because this school has never been organised and it is so sad that my fears have come to pass.

“I would have preferred we continue with the normal way of writing the exams instead of putting students through this insane stress,” he said.

However, some students, who were able to start the CBT, left the examination halls because their computers went off in the middle of the exams.

As of the time of filing this report, some students have been asked to go home and come back the next day.
