Some departments at Makerere University have failed to issue timetables to students despite two days left to the start of examinations. The exams will start on Monday to September 30.

This week, the university Academic Registrar Alfred Masikye Namoah instructed all colleges in a circular to issue exam timetables and guidelines on the particular alternative online modes of assessment.

However, some schools and departments completely do not have the timetables while others have draft timetables.

In the past, examination timetables at Makerere University would be released a month earlier to enable students to prepare.

Sheena Kemihegheyo, a student pursuing a Bachelor of Drama and Filming says that they are confused since they have not been issued with timetables.

Cue out: ...it's really dramatic"//

Polly Nagaba explains that they hoped to have special treatment for exams as medical students, but they are yet to be issued with timetables.

//Cue in: "Well at the...

Cue out: ...not yet out"//

Alex Kato from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Science says that two time tables have been issued with different dates. He says that students are uncertain of when the examinations will start.

//Cue in: "There are two...

Cue out: ....going to use."//

Makerere University decided to administer its first online examinations in suitable assessment modes for different colleges. After examinations, the students will proceed with online lectures as the institution awaits the official opening of schools which remains uncertain.

Other universities like Uganda Christian University and Kampala International University have administered online examinations to their students.

During online examinations, students will use platforms like zoom, Makerere University e-Learning Environment and emails among others.

However Professor Barnabas Nawangwe, the Vice-Chancellor Makerere University called for calm among the students. He says that the colleges can administer the assessments whenever they are ready within the examination period.
