UPSA moves Second Semester exams online with each paper not exceeding 48 hrs

“The examinations shall be Take-Home-Exams (THEs) or Assignments,” the University says.

The University of Professional Studies, Accra has rolled out measures to conduct its end of Second Semester Examination for the 2019/2020 academic year.

In a statement signed by the Pro Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Barnor Tuesday, the school says the end of Second Semester examinations will be conducted online based on the scheduled timetable published by the Academic Affairs Directorate.

“The examinations shall be Take-Home-Exams (THEs) or Assignments,” the statement read.

“The maximum time allotted for each THE shall not exceed 48 hours,” the school has cautioned.

The University of Professional Studies, Accra was compelled to resort to the use of a virtual platform to continue with academic work due to the closure of both public and private universities as a result of the spread of the coronavirus.

The school’s virtual platform discriminates against students who have not registered for the academic year and who will be paying penalty for late registration.

There were rumours that the school will not conduct any examination for its students many of whom are unable to access the virtual platform due to non-registration and poor internet connectivity.

But the University has parried that claim, saying the online examination will take the form of either Take-Home-Exams (THEs) or Assignments.

  1. Please what about those who haven’t paid their fees due to the lock down and most jobs have been lost
    Let’s consider this things please

  2. Please this is a good decision but it will go badly against students who struggle to pay the fees themselves, whose parents are just petty traders and etc that cannot pay the fees at the moment due to this pandemic. Lockdowns and close of works has freeze incomes and the little we saved is what we depend on for survival.
    We plead on UPSA Management to extend the time for the Exams a little or consider unpaid students to also partake in the Exams.
