A student was rushed to hospital after reportedly collapsing at the senate building, Makerere University last week.
According to an eye witness, a lady who went to the university after the academic registrar released lists of successful students who had applied for admission to the country’s best university; but collapsed when she did not find her name on the admission list.
“At 10:50am last week on Thursday 17th July 2015, we were approached by a lady who wanted to check her name on the notice board, but because the notice boards were congested, she requested us to search for her name online which we couldn’t find. The female student was treated very badly with the unwelcoming news. When she collapsed, we had to rush her to the University hospital for treatment.”
This year’s admission has gone under severe cuts with a reduction in the number of students admitted compared to last academic year’s 21,000.
Meanwhile a big number of students have been addressed this Monday morning by the officials from the academic registrars over the procedure on how to access the admission letters.
Over fifty students stormed senate this morning with complaints on why they were not admitted to the oldest public university when they had all the qualifications.
