The University of Cape Coast has released results of final batch of Diploma in Education trained teachers.Over 15,000 students took part in the final examinations early July, 2020 across the country.
The results are released by officials at the Institute of Education of the University of Cape Coast.Students are expected to pay their examination fees owed the Institute before they get access to their results.
The revelation was through an official of the Institute of Education at the University of Cape Coast who spoke on condition of anonymity to the News Desk of the Colleges of Education Weekly Journal monitored by Talksafrica.com.
“We have been very charitable to them before the exams. We allowed them to sit for the examinations due to the challenges COVID – 19 presented. However, our checks have revealed that all trainees were paid their allowances. So we expect them to do the needful and get access to their results” He stated that
He also stressed that, “all Newly Trained Teachers /Colleges that have paid their examination fees will gain access to their results”.
Reacting to this development, Dr Samuel Awinkene Atintono, Principal of Accra College of Education stated that most students did not pay their examination fees prior to the start of the exams.
“Before the exams, we noticed that Institute of Education – UCC had asked students to pay their examination fees. Directly into their account but a majority of students did not pay.
He added that at the Accra College of Education, he had to plead with the Institute of Education to allow the students write the exams and pay later when the results are in.
“The best thing to do was to allow them to write the exams, when the time comes for the results to be released. They can hold it until the students clear themselves we had some communication with the student leadership and I informed the students during the exams. As it stands, I don’t think that should be a problem. Because the government has done well by paying them their allowances and the feeding grants to the College”.
