As Uganda Christian University strives to serve its students during COVID19 lock-down, many challenges have been posed one of them being weak and no internet access.
However this issue has now been solved. The university administration will come up with a policy to enable UCU students with poor internet to sit examinations offline.
Rev. Dr John Kitayimbwa, the deputy vice chancellor in charge of academic affairs confirmed that after interactions with the affected students, an agreement was reached for examination papers to be delivered to churches for easy access.
The original arrangement for online examinations still stands for students with a good internet connection. By September 15, 2020 all students will have accessed the examination paper.
The examination structure, Rev.Dr Kitayimbwa stresses will require practical activities to avoid malpractice in this environment of limited supervision.
The examination desk has also ensured installation of plagiarism detection programs to ensure proper assessment before awarding of marks.
The entire examination process will take place in a period of a month.
