AAUA: Management Gives Directives On New Examination Policies

The management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, has reiterated its stance on stopping unregistered students from partaking in the forthcoming first semester examinations for the 2020/2021 academic session. 

This was contained in a circular released to the university community, dated 30th September 2021, with ref no: AD/REG/SEN/SDE/VOL.1/04, signed by the Deputy Registrar Academy, O. Oluwarinde. 


The circular read: “Arising from the consideration of the examination misconduct report to the senate at its 172nd regular meeting held on Wednesday, 29th September 2021 noted that vital information such as correct names, valid matriculation and jamb registration numbers of some alleged students were not stated in the report. Senate expressed dismay over the. The senate discussed the matter at length and directed it as follows.

The Acting Director of ICTAC should endeavour to download the list of all students duly registered every semester, with effect from the first semester, 2021 academic session and forward the same to all the departments three(3) weeks before the commencement of the semester examinations.”

Also, the circular strengthened that students who have not paid the first semester fees should be denied partaking in the mid-semester test. 

According to the circular: “Every invigilator should seek goodwill in managing the examination hall, using all available devices while on supervision.”

However, Head of departments(HODs) and Deans are directed to organise training on the good conduct of examinations to all their newly recruited academic staff. 

More so, the circular enforced that any students found with falsified registration slip, payment receipt, clearance certificate before commencement or during the conduct of the examinations are to be reported to appropriate organs of the university for proper sanctioning.

Furthermore, the circular noted that only students with payment clearance satisfied by the constituted committee are to be allowed to sit for the examinations. 

“All categories of academic staff should be actively involved in the supervision of examinations,” the circular added.

“Only Registered Students Will Write The Exams” -VC

Speaking to the institution’s campus journalists after his speech at the inauguration ceremony of the new Students Union Executives, the Vice-chancellor, Professor Olugbenga Ige proclaimed that only students who are duly registered and have paid for the first semester will be permitted to wrote the forthcoming examinations.


“I spent four days at the University of Lagos(UNILAG) during the time they were writing examinations, and I saw students holding a laminated sheet; I inquired one of them what they were doing with the paper and she said clearance for eligibility to participate in the ongoing examinations.

He added that the University was not the poorest in the world to allow students to proceed sitting for examinations without payment.

“I had approved a work and study scheme, where 200 students were employed and were being paid every month. The management is doing this to bring the University back on track and tread on the same path with other universities.”

According to the school calendar, the first semester examinations for the 2020/2021 academic session will commence on the 22nd of November and end on the 11th of December, 2021.
