Examination postponed

2015-10-29 06:00

THE management of the University of the Free State (UFS) decided on Friday (23/11), in line with other universities in the country, to postpone the main examination to Monday (02/11) and the additional examination to 23 November.

The decision comes after students across the country took part in a protest action against the increase of fees in 2016.

Students of the UFS participated in the protest from Tuesday, 20 October.

Moving the examination by one week will afford all students the opportunity to prepare for their examination and to take the additional assessment opportunities they missed during this past week to make up their predicate mark, the university said in a statement.

The exam timetable sequence/order remains exactly the same as scheduled and the changed examination timetables have been published on the UFS website (www.ufs.ac.za) and Blackboard.

Students are requested to note the exemptions to the postponement.

These exceptions are also published on the UFS website and Blackboard.

Academic and administrative activities resumed on all three campuses of the UFS as from Monday (26/10).
