Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has released a provisional timetable to crown the second semester of academic work.

This comes after schools accross the world have had to close down abruptly in a bid to control the spread of the disease whose cure is yet to found.

According to the timetable, examinations will officially start from Monday, 25th April, 2020 and will be done strictly on online basis.

The schedule which ends on Friday, 12th June 2030 indicates the courses to be written on the dates marked, supervising lecturers as well as the time period for the submission of examination questions.

The time table indicates that students will have a standard of 2 hours examination time to submit their papers but have a grace period of 24 hours to submit papers and in the case of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ’s), 12 hours.

Student Agitation
Students of the Institute have since the inception of the e-learning modalities have raised concerns that sought to address what they have described as challenges that are associated with the carrying out of academic work.
Although not an isolated case to the school, the SRC in a petition to the school’s management called on authorities to help in addressing problems ranging from poor network connectivity which might exclude other students to the cost of data involved in participating in classes.

Whiles these calls have been made by most students accross the nation, the schools have had to depend on full online classes to get the semester the was cut short in motion. Many student unions have kicked against the conduct of examinations online.
The Ghana Institute of Journalism if not the first is amongst the first schools to roll out a time table for full online examinations.
