One University of Ghana student from Nigeria identified as @JuniorOvk on Twitter has poured out his frustration after the school has scheduled physical exams for August.
Ovk dropped the video on his personal handle in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh that is fast-going viral for its passionate and captivating nature.
According to an announcement by the Ghanaian university on its official website, re-sit examinations for first semester courses have been scheduled to start on August 1, 2020.
Watch the video below:
The announcement signed by the Ag. Director, Christy Badu (Mrs), explains that although the exams will be taken online, it will be on-site, which means every student must be present physically for it.
Avk, who appears to have some re-sit exam to take, implies that the school did not really take the foreign students into consideration before setting the date for the exams.
According to the Nigerian, UG knows that the borders are closed and as some of the students have travelled outside the country, it is almost impossible for them to return for the exams.
In a separate report by YEN.com.gh, two visually impaired siblings, David and his sister Esther, have received a cash amount of GHc12,000 from a foundation to pursue their education dreams.
Just like almost everyone, the pair have dreams and aspirations, but they’ve had to live with the reality that they are blind.
David wants to pursue a career in law while his sister, Esther, plans on becoming a self-made businesswoman. She wants to become a successful entrepreneur.
