GIJ shut down over exam pandemonium

Agitation and chaos by students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) over a new policy that requires that they pay their fees in full and also register online as prerequisites to their sitting for exams conducted by the school, has led to a temporary closure of the state-owned institute.

The students went into a frenzy on campus on Sunday, 2 December 2018 after some of them were turned away from sitting for their exams over their failure to register online for the papers as well as their inability to pay their fees in full.

Police officers had to be deployed on campus to restore and maintain calm.

The rumpus has compelled the school authorities to suspend the writing of the remaining papers.

Some of the students complained that they could not complete the e-registration process due to its complexity.

They insisted the lecturers gave them the go-ahead to sit for the exams after going through the manual registration process.

The affected students are blaming the new rector for ordering that they are locked out of the exam hall.

A day prior, several students, including those who have paid about 80 per cent of their fees, had been prevented from sitting for the paper.
