Exams response period remains 48hrs, disregard 24hrs – UPSA Course Reps boss to students

Chairman of UPSA Council of Course Reps, Dela Ofori

The Chairman of the Council of Course Representatives at the University of Professional Studies, Accra is assuring students that response period for the online exams remains 48 hours.

Dela Ofori has asked students to ignore the 24 hour-period stated in the examination timetable that was released by the school on Saturday.


“It’s a mistake [because] whenever timetable comes out, time is allocated for all forms of corrections so this should be seen in that light,” he told UPSANEWSROOM.com in an interview.

A majority of students are incensed after they discovered that the timetable released by the school has the response period reduced from 48 hours to 24 hours.

But the Chairman of Course Reps said the changes were a mistake which students have to ignore.

“Students should just stay calm and expect the new timetable to be out in the evening [Saturday],” he said.

Mr Ofori said students should not take it that the Vice-Chancellor has deceived them by the changes in the timetable.

“It is a mistake they made and they are willing to change it,” the Chairman of Course Reps said.

  1. 24hrs period isn’t the only issue, 99%of weekend students are workers ,perhaps lockdown periods are over, how are they expecting them to be working and at the same time taken an exams don’t the same weekdays as regular student who aren’t working. Please the earlier they move weekend students exam times to weekend the better, if truly they care about the future of their students and not only their gargantuan profits .. Thanks
