Dear Staff and Students

As we conclude the second week of examinations, I am pleased to inform you that the University’s 2016 year-end examination period, is continuing exceptionally smoothly. At the end of Saturday, 26 November, 88,000 of 156,231 exam sittings were concluded, and we have now passed the half-way mark. I am particularly pleased at the very high student attendance of above 94% in these examinations. The logistics and management of examinations is no easy feat. Consider for example that on Monday, 21 November, 17,068 of our students sat for their examinations across our four campuses. I am also pleased to note the responsiveness shown by our students to our call for them to arrive early and for their compliance with the ‘no bag in venue’ policy. We will off course continue to maintain high vigilance as we make our way towards the conclusion of examinations on Tuesday, the 6th of December.
