Following the mail earlier sent by the school indicating mid-semester tests had been shifted, the Dean of Student Affairs, Dr Azeem Ige has asked that the information is discarded.
The Dean, during an interview with the Union of Campus Journalists, LAUTECH on Tuesday said, the timetable was only a draft and as such, should be considered invalid.
“The test timetable is invalid. It was only a draft made by the school. Tests are starting this month, immediately after the UTME has been concluded. The test will not last more than a week as we want students to have time to prepare for their examinations.”
He added that the examination date, May 6th, as scheduled by the school in its calendar remains the same.
He further stated that the school intends to make its examination model CBT-type. This, he said, was to reduce the rate of complaints about Awaiting Results, No Results, missing scripts, malpractices and most importantly, to ensure payment of tuition fee by every student.
“The management’s decision to make exams CBT-type is in the best interest of the students, as this will help curb the issues associated with results including AR and the likes.”
He also added the management was working on ensuring stable electricity in the school, especially during tests and exams.
“We are working on getting a 33kVA generator that would help solve the electricity challenges the school is facing. Plans are as well being made to power all major halls with generator within the hours of 8pm-5am during tests and examinations”, he said.
