Exam Tips for Students

- Start preparing now

- Revise each lecture within 8 hours from when it was taught (Begin Now )

- Have a reading plan

- Study your most difficult courses during your peak periods ( very early morning or early evening ).

- Be an active, rather than passive reader ( take note and read critically )

- Your place of study should be free from distraction and interruptions.

- Consider revision with friends; treat all your tutorial questions several times.

- Ensure that you know the date and time of each examination in advance.

We believe you can make it, just put in your very best. Good luck.

 

Invigilators should:

  • Get to the hall at least 30 minutes before the commencement of each paper.
  • Check in students into the hall.
  • Only students whose names are on the tutorial list, who possess original university clearance cards, and are properly dressed (with their lapels on) should be allowed into the examination halls.
  • Give out answer booklets and question papers to only accredited students
  • Sign on all answer booklets, attendance sheets and scripts envelopes.
  • Ensure that every student completes all the details on the cover page of his/her answer booklet.
  • Please do not collect any answer booklet that does not have all these details
  • Ensure that the attendance sheet is filled by every student, with all the details completed, department by department with the names of students carrying over a course written on a separate sheet.
  • Attendance sheets should be properly monitored by invigilators because all students who sign the must be accounted for.
  • Count the number of scripts collected for each examination and ensure that it tallies with the number of students who signed the attendance sheet.
  • Make sure that each script envelope is well-labeled with the following information: session, semester, course title, course code, number of scripts, names of invigilators, signature of invigilators and date.

Note: A 'table' of envelopes should be prepared by invigilators to guide the students on submission of scripts at the end of each examination.

 

Submission and collection of scripts at the end of each examination.

Invigilators must, as a matter of duty, submit scripts of the courses they invigilate for the Exams and Records Office immediately after each examination. Course lecturers should, in turn, collect their scripts for marking on the day of the examination, and not after collection till the following day

Task Force on Dress Code Swings to Action

As from this semester, a 5-man taskforce on the enforcement of dress code, will on regular basis monitor students’ level of compliance to the approved University dress code. The members are: Dr Ayobami Owolabi, Dr. Simeon Ola-Oni, Lt. A. K. Oluade (Rtd), Dr. Tolu Adenekan and Mrs. Ayanjompe.

Specifically, the 5-man taskforce has been mandated to pay unscheduled visit to classrooms, laboratories, studios etc. and any student found contravening the approved dress code of the University will be penalized on the spot. The penalty ranges from a minimum fine of N5,000 for first offender to suspension for a period not less than one semester or total expulsion.

Lecturers should also be vigilant and assist in enforcing this policy. A lecturer will be found culpable or must have compromised the standard if five students were found to be improperly dressed in his/her class. The name of the lecturer will be forwarded to the office of the Registrar for appropriate sanction.

Though, we provide a university environment that allows academic freedom and modernity with cutting edge facilities, we however do not equate secularity with unfettered obscenity in the name of fashion. We cannot afford to shrink from our responsibilities as “in loco parentis” (local parent) to our students.
