University of Cape Coast (UCC), also known as University of Constant Confusion, notable for its ability to render its students completely confused about certain matters, is commencing the semester with fresh confusion.
One of the numerous confusions that the institution stirred last year was their late reply to President Akuffo Addo’s directive that all tertiary institutions be resumed in January contrary to the school’s old calendar which demanded that fresh students report on November 9, 2020, while the continuing students report on November, 21.
The fresh students who were eager to have a taste of university life were so desperate to report to school. Unfortunately, the President’s directive had affected their mood. While University of Ghana and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology released communiqués complying with the President’s directive, UCC delayed in updating its students thereby making its students confused as to whether they would go by the given calendar or the President’s directive.
On January, 11, the Directorate of Academic Affairs- UCC has issued a communiqué informing the UCC student populace particularly level 100 students of special supplementary and end of semester examinations for failed level 100 courses scheduled to take place from Monday, January 18 to January 22.
This is a re-sit opportunity for any student who has failed to redeem him/herself to be able to progress to the next level.
This is where 2021 UCC confusion begins. While students are still awaiting the second-semester examination results, a special supplementary examination commences on January 18. Time tables for this special examination have been released.
Many students are currently confused as they do not know whether they have failed certain courses or not. They have therefore resorted to Whatsapp platforms to express their shock.
