Following the suspension of the Resit/Supplementary Examination by the Management of KTU just two days to start the examination has seen mixed reactions from the student populace. A notice cited which was signed and dated Sunday 11th August 2019.
Many of those are students who have travelled from afar to Koforidua to partake the examination considering the fact that students are on vacation. Some who probably have learned and wouldn’t want to give chances to wait a little longer.
Although suspended, some are jubilating for haven’t prepared or learnt enough, but the majority of these are students who couldn’t register for the examination. This can be attributed to the inability to access their portal (SIP) due to forgetfulness of their passwords or couldn’t raise the registration money, believe-me or not, students have up to 7 or more resits or have paid, logged in to the system but just couldn’t follow the processes to register
It can be seen as exaggerating, but to be honest with you, I believe about 20% or more students haven’t seen their results since it’s release about three weeks ago. These are students who probably up to now don’t know if they have trails, some trailed either in their first year or the second year but might have issues of registration mentioned above. To make matters worse, others say they haven’t heard of the registration.
As humans as we are, in a community of over 7,000 plus, you will find a few forgetting or having issues with their passwords which is normal for any system to take care of, the average KTU student is not smart to making use of smart devices as aids to helping them remember or store passwords. The question is, is the portal smart and user-friendly?
No one is better off when it comes to finances, 50ghc for the cost of registering one resit paper could have an effect on students savings, especially if you have about 7 or more retakes.
Students are on holidays and many are in remote areas where making a phone call could be a challenge not to think of accessing the internet to be informed of registering any Resit, so its understandable if some say they haven’t heard of the resit registration.
The examination which was scheduled to have started today 13th August 2019 has been suspended due to the boycott of the Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) KTU chapter. DeInsider is yet to establish any reasons leading to the boycott.
The good news is that another window of opportunity has been opened for students who couldn’t register for the resit examination.
Students who have left homes and are on campus to write the exams will have to return home or stay a little longer, indications on the reopening of the resit examination, which starts today 13th and ends on the 18th August, will mean that a new Timetable will be drawn thereafter. It will be too early to suggest that the examination suspension can be called off anytime next week.
However, whichever situation you find yourself, management of KTU has sincerely apologised for any inconveniences the suspension might have caused students and other stakeholders.
Thanks for reading and be calm if you are a “resiter”, these are good times to learn more or register if you couldn’t get the chance. Take this opportunity to inform all your friends who haven’t registered yet
