The Downside of obtaining Supplementary, E and referral grades

 

  • A supplementary (SUPP) means a re-sit the following term. Students are allowed one re sit only.
  • 2 E grades attract an academic warning letter from the Deputy Principal Academics
  • 3 E grades in one term lead to expulsion from the course
  • The E and SUPP grades are NOT deleted from the transcript after clearance
  • There will soon be a fee for re-sitting examinations

Some Punishable Examination Offences

 

  • Possession of unauthorized written material in the exam room
  • Copying from other candidates
  • Communicating orally with other candidates during examination
  • Possession of used or unused examination answer booklets in the examination room
  • Having Laptops and mobile phones in the examination room

 

All forms of cheating lead to cancellation of the examination.

 

For success in your academic pursuit, plan, be responsible and believe in yourself.
