300 Students involved in Makerere University Marks Fraud

Over 300 students have been mentioned in the Makerere University marks irregularities.

Information from the Academic Registrar’s office indicate a total of 299 students of Bachelor of Ethics and Human Rights were accorded marks in an unclear manner.

In the most irregular incident, students of EHR 3102 Critical Thinking, a course unit under Bachelor of Ethics and Human Rights were added marks when 155 of the 325 students failed the semester one 2017/18 academic year exam.

According to the letter from the Academic Registrar, Alfred Masikye Namoah to the Deputy Vice Chancellor Dr. Okello Ogwang, 206 students were each added 10 marks, 44 added between 6-9 marks, 30 added between 1-5 marks, 18 students added between 11 and 15 marks while four students didn’t receive any additional marks.

However student registration number 14/U/7602/PS received 28 marks while one student Registration Number 15/U/21417 had their marks reduced by six.

“The minutes of the Department of Philosophy where the students’ marks were considered were not availed,” Masikye said.

“Based on this, it can be concluded that there was no systematic increment in the marks to students. The marks were allegedly arbitrarily awarded by the former Head of Department.”
