Important Information on Examinations
Examinations are very important component of a student’s academic life and students are expected to familiarize themselves with the Examination Policy Manual. End of term Examinations shall be conducted in the 14th and 15th week of the term and it is important to note that there are two categories of examination: Continuous Assessment Test (CAT) and Ordinary Examination. Continuous assessment test may take any or a combination of the following forms: practicum or formal test while Ordinary Examinations are examinations that are taken at the end of the term. In order to qualify to sit for Institute examinations, a student must be a bonified member of the Institute and maintain an attendance of 75%. Every student who is registered for Institute’s examinations will be issued with an examination card by their respective departments which must be produced at each examination sitting. A student who experiences a problem, which is likely to affect his/her examination performance (i.e. sickness, bereavement etc.) must report before sitting the examinations such problems in writing to the HOD offering the courses the student is taking. Any problem that is reported after the examination results are known will not be admissible for examination appeals.
Academic transcripts are issued to students as evidence of courses taken and the grades attained in each course as per relevant Institute’s grading system. The preparation of transcripts is dependent on the receipt of complete, accurate and up-to-date consolidated mark sheets from the Departments. Examination officer shall immediately after results are approved by the academic board, initiate the process of updating transcripts. Transcripts may be released to student or sponsor once they are needed.
