FUOYE Postpones CBT Exams Over Conduct

FUOYE Postpones CBT Exams Over Conduct

The management of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) has postponed its Computer Based Test (CBT) examinations by one week to address concerns raised by the students and other stakeholders concerning the conduct of the exams.

Some students who visited the CBT centre to take the exams were unable to do so which led to mob action.

It was rumoured that the mob action which was caused by the inability of some students to take the CBT exams led to the death of a student. 

However, the management in a statement made available from the office of the Registrar, Mufutau Ibrahim, on Thursday debunked the news, stating that no causality was recorded at the centre.

The statement titled: PRESS RELEASE ON CBT EXAMINATIONS, reads in part: “The University Management noted the issues that have arisen in the course of administering the CBT as we make academic progress with the First Semester Examinations, and strongly express regret at the turn of events.

“However, it is pertinent to point out that concerned students had been duly informed that the CBT had been cancelled for today, Thursday, 30th March 2023 to accommodate the JAMB Mock UTME as scheduled.

"It is unfortunate that students still troop in large numbers to the University’s ICT Centre, which almost resulted in mob action.

“To this end, all CBT Examinations have been postponed for one week as an immediate and interim measure. For the avoidance of doubt, all pen-on paper First Semester Examinations would go on as scheduled, please.

“It is worthy of note that the Vice-Chancellor and his Management Team were physically present at the ICT Centre today to address the matters as they arose.

"The Vice-Chancellor has further set up a Committee to address all the issues identified in this regard – from planning/scheduling to allegations of extortion made against some security personnel.

“Thankfully, no casualty was recorded as the Vice-Chancellor and the Management Team as well as the University Health Centre personnel were fully available to handle emergencies.

"We sincerely regret any inconveniences these may have caused."
