Students of University of Jos to re-write exams

Students of University of Jos whose unmarked examination scripts were burnt on Saturday are to rewrite the affected papers.

The Registrar of the institution, Mr Monday Danjem, announced this in a statement issued in Jos on Tuesday.

The fire, which lasted for six hours, gutted the university’s library complex which equally housed the faculties of social science and management studies.

Danjem said the examinations had been rescheduled to a date to be communicated to the students by their respective heads of departments.

The registrar said the remaining examinations would resume on Tuesday while all examinations scheduled to take place on Monday, Oct. 10, have been rescheduled.

He said some of the examinations were earlier postponed to enable management assess the level of damage done by the fire.

Vice Chancellor Sebastine Maimako described the disaster as “very shocking and devastating.

“It is a major drawback that is really terrible for the university”, he had told newsmen after visiting the scene on Sunday.
