The 2020/2021 End of Second Semester Examinations for regular students of the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) finally got underway smoothly on August 30, 2021.
The nationwide industrial action of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) delayed the commencement of the examinations on August 2, 2021, as originally planned.
The Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor of AAMUSTED, Prof. James Kagya-Agyemang, monitored the examinations on August 30, 2021, and concluded happily that the necessary arrangements were in place to achieve yet another successful examinations.
He was happy, particularly, about the strict adherence to the various COVID-19 preventive protocols at the examination centers, the general comportment of students, and the vigilance of invigilators and supervisors.
Accompanying him on the monitoring were the Head of Department of Academic Affairs, Dr. Charles Baba Campion, and the Coordinator of the Quality Assurance Unit, Dr. Emmanuel Appiah-Kubi.
The Management of the University made adequate preparations to guarantee the convenience of students since the UTAG strike made the students to overstay the original time for a vacation. Key among them was a swift move by the Management to arrange with owners of hostels in the environs of the University to accommodate the students for free for four weeks to enable them to write the examinations without extra accommodation cost burden.
The Management, therefore, has directed students who might face accommodation challenges to consult the Office of Vice-Dean of Student Affairs for immediate help.
