The sacked students are reported to have performed abysmally and fallen below the borderline of 1.5 Cumulative GPA.
Others are also said to have referred in multiple subjects and could not pass the resit exams even when given the opportunity to rewrite the subjects with the same examination questions.
Meanwhile, the repeated students also reportedly referred in three papers and still couldn't redeem themselves after re-sitting the same papers.
The sanctions were explained by management of the college to parents of the affected students during a meeting.
