About 70 final year Distance Education students of University of Cape Coast (UCC) at Atefuah Senior High School Campus in Akyem Oda are exasperated over their sacking from examination Hall for owing varied amounts of School fees.
Some of the affected students owe as little as GHC200 but have been prevented from writing the exams.
The aggrieved students say the decision by management of the University will have dire implications on their GPA and if not given the opportunity to write again, they may not be graduated.
“We will just complete tomorrow so we have our last papers today and tomorrow so we complete the 3-year course. They didn’t set a limit for us like may be if you are owing gh500 you cannot write. Some of us are owing Ghc40 others are owing Ghc250, ghc300 and others are owing Ghc3000 but they have sacked all of us from the exams hall. We are about 70”.
He added: “the implication is that we can’t graduate unless maybe they consider us to write the Papers and even that we are going to write I/C and if we are going to write I/C unless a year later. There is anger here and some of the students are using foul languages on the lecturers”.
