UNIVERSITY OF CAPE COAST
STUDENTS’ REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL

Date: 12th June, 2019
TOPIC: SRC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE PAYS A COURTESY CALL TO THE PRO VICE CHANCELLOR
On the 10th of June, the Executive Committee of the Students’ Representative Council of the University of Cape Coast paid a courtesy call to the Pro Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Dora Edu – Buandoh.
We used the occasion to raise some pertinent issues relating to the academic well being of the students.
At the meeting, we strongly appealed, first of all, that many students raised bitter complains about last semester’s examination timetable and going forward there’s a need to restructure examination timetable to make it less stressful for students and to enable students have ample time to prepare and write their exams under limited or no pressure. The SRC believes that if the examination timetable is structured in this manner, it will help increase the possibility of more students performing well in examination.
The Pro Vice Chancellor reasoned with us and assured us that she will carry it forward for immediate consideration.
Again, the SRC besought Prof Edu – Buandoh to also push forward students’ plight concerning the resit policy of the university, particularly, the resit policy of students in level 200 and 300. We explained that students in these two levels who fail a course would have to sit in class with their ‘juniors’ to retake the quizzes and exams with them. We pointed out that students who face this situation complain painfully and there’s a need to restructure this policy to enable such students to resit properly for the exams for better results. Again, the professor gave us her words that she will carry this plight for consideration at the management level.
This is one of the steps among others yet to come that the SRC will be taking to ensure that we push for stress free academic environment for the students.
Students’ interest before any other consideration.
