Students of the University of Lagos are at loggerheads with the school’s management for putting them at risk of carry-overs.
According to the students, the management closed the registration portal “prematurely”.
Two weeks before commencing exams, the students, who are about 8000 in number, were disappointed to discover that the portal has been closed without notice, which goes against the usual practice.
Hence, students have been unable to add or edit courses which could result into extra year for the final year students and carry-over courses for the other students.
“They give notices beforehand and also give a timeline for it. Four to six weeks after resumption registration portal will be open and two weeks before exam, it will be opened again . This time they didn’t give any notice, nothing,” a student told TheCable Lifestyle.
“Police officers have been on campus since Tuesday to diffuse any potential of tension breaking out on campus.
“Some people are thinking of protesting but since we don’t have a student union again, it’s difficult.”
Another student said undergraduates are supposed to know that they should finish registration on time.
“Students are supposed to know that they should know that they should finish registration on time. Now policemen have been on campus since Tuesday although they have reduced in number.”
Efforts to reach the management of the university at the time of filing this report proved abortive.
