The Kumasi Technical University (KTU) administration has changed its mind about deferring the programs of students who did not register for their courses during the current semester.
The University’s administration requested that 648 students postpone their programs after they missed repeated chances to register for their classes.
However, the Academic Board of the University decided to hold special tests for the impacted students once the current second-semester exams are finished on Monday during its Emergency Meeting.
The Board is certain that only those students who have paid all fees and appropriate penalties will be allowed to take the special exams.
The heads of the departments have been instructed to receive written submissions from all impacted students by Tuesday, August 22, 2023, for review.
The administration has said that the students would be informed as soon as possible about the Special Examinations’ procedures.
Joshua Appiah, the acting university relations officer, also counseled students to carefully check that their online registration is properly reflected on the site to prevent repetition of similar situations.
Additionally, he advised the students to develop the practice of enrolling in classes at the start of each semester.
While the impacted students have welcomed the current development, they are not pleased with the way the previous choice has harmed their psychological and emotional well-being.
