With barely three weeks after resumption, the university of Jos staff and students are on their heels to ensure the successful conclusion of the 2017/2018 second semester examination.
Upon resumption to continue the second semester which was interrupted by the ASUU strike, students and lecturers have had just four weeks to cover the rest of the academic syllabus as examination was slated to commence on the 18th of March 2019, putting both lecturers and students on their toes. Fixed classes, assignments, tests and speedy lectures became the order of the day.
Speaking to a lecturer from the department of English who chose to remain anonymous, he said that the semester has placed a burden on them to cover a lot within a very short period of time. This would include marking test scripts, assignments, presentations and covering the rest of the topics in the syllabus. He added that the students most times were quite cooperative knowing that that had very little time to prepare for the exams.
Michael Monasor, a student from the department of religion and philosophy added that the civil unrest, election activities and the tension it created are not favorable conditions to place the students on the right mental frame to study but also added that students should be advised to put in efforts in ensuring that they excel in the just commenced exams, as the prize for success is steep.
