Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) will from today, 6th April 2021, begin their end of semester examinations online.
This development, according to management of the school, forms part of efforts by the school to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
GIJ’s first semester exams, which was originally scheduled for 29th March 2021, could not hold after the school asked defaulters of school fees to defer.
The management of GIJ directed students who had paid their fees after the registration deadline to defer their programme.
The authorities of GIJ, however, granted amnesty to students who failed to register early for the 2020/2021 academic year to register and sit for the exams after a heated protest by the students which gained public sympathy.
The school in a statement rescinded its earlier decision, giving fee-defaulting students five days to settle their arrears.
According to a statement from the school, the development was taken based on a petition the school received from the student leaders.
“We therefore wish to remind all students that all other stakeholders that GIJ is granting this amnesty to the students for the last time”, the statement added.
