Raising the bar in the University examination integrity
The university management through the Directorate of Examinations has undertaken to improve the security and quality of examination booklets with the aim of having control of the booklets as well as enhancing the integrity of examinations.
The new booklet will be in three different colours, pink, blue and yellow with additional security features. These include a unique barcode that will be of great help in tracking the missing Mark’s , booklets from the store to the archives. The Directorate of examination with the help of Directorate of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) has developed a booklet movement control system that will be rolled in the next examination series.
