Some Universities in Ghana have resorted to online exams and studies despite the presidents directive of schools to re-open for final year students.
The president Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday 31st May 2020 announced that school will reopen to allow final year students to go back and write their exit exams amidst the COVID-19 pandemic with eased restriction rules and safety measures.
The directive included Junior High School, Secondary and tertiary schools who have for the past two months been home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, some tertiary institutions and schools have decided to make their students continue with their online class and also online exams. The University of Ghana, Ghana Institute Of Journalism, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the University of Education are among some schools who have announced that students are still going to write their exams online despite the ease and restrictions the government has put in place in order to help them stay safe while they study on campus.
On Monday 1st June 2020, a communique was released by the management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism and some other schools directing their students to be ready for the online exams despite the presidents indicating that, studies will continue online and nothing has changed in their previous timetable.
