NOUN Stops Final Year ‘Latecomers’ From Writing Exams

Abuja Chapter of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Wuse 2 centre, has barred over 50 students from participating in their semester examinations.

Some final year students of the institution were said to have been affected by the unexpected decision of the school management.

Some of the affected students said NOUN institution usually gave them 30 minutes to settle down before the commencement of the exams.

According to a student, Sadiyat Abdullahi, she said, “But I arrived at exactly 8 am and I watched them lock the gate. In fact, two students struggled their ways inside while the NOUN officials were still locking the gate; this is not fair because no prior information was made available to us on this.”

Another student and a 55-year-old senior civil servant, Judith Patrick, said it was an obvious reason to raise money for the institution in an illegal way.

Speaking about the development, the NOUN Director of Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Sheme, said the students were denied entry because they arrived after the examination had started.

“One of the rules at NOUN is that candidates for an examination must arrive at the venue at least thirty minutes or an hour before the exam kicks off. In this period of the pandemic, that is even more necessary so that the set safety protocols can be applied fully,” Sheme said.
