Exam Briefing: Noun Takes Pride For Students Who Are Hard-working - Okonkwo

May 9, 2024

The Director, Enugu Study Centre, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Prof. Charity Akuadi Okonkwo, has said that the institution takes pride in students who are hard-working towards their studies for positive outcomes.

Such students, she said, would be capable of defending their certificates anywhere. Okonkwo stated this on Thursday, May 3, 2024, while briefing new and the returning students in preparation for the 2024_1 e- exam and pen-on-paper (PoP) examination at the centre in Enugu State.

While charging students to be good ambassadors of NOUN, the director also implored them to start preparing for their examination thoroughly for those who have not started studying their course materials.

She said that the university management holds examinations at high premium and frowns at any form of malpractice, adding that offenders would not escape from facing the wrath of law concerning exams.

The director advised them to carefully and meticulously read the exam rules stipulated at the back of the exam booklet so they could become familiar with them for effective compliance. Okonkwo underscored the importance of punctuality and promptness in the exam, noting that no student, for whatever reason, would be allowed into the exam hall even one minute after the commencement of the paper.

'Students are expected to be sited down in the exam hall by 7:30am for the 8:00am exam, while for the 11:30am exam, students are required to be in the exam hall by 11:00am, and finally, for the 2:30pm exam, they are obliged to be in the exam hall by 2:00pm,' Okonkwo said.

The director, who is a Professor of Educational Measurement and Evaluation, defined examination as the act of determining a learner's mastering level of tasks, skills, and aptitudes, saying that the stipulated rules and standards of examination cannot be compromised.

She added that screening students for proper registration of courses and examinations is not negotiable, advising them to meet their faculty desk officers in case of indiscriminate registration of courses and examinations.

Okonkwo said that the tutor-marked assessment (TMA) prepares students for the final examination, and they are expected to study their course materials before attempting the TMA. He also noted that to pass a course, students must take both the TMA and examination, as any default would translate into incomplete results.

Students took turns to ask questions on grey areas, while the centre management provided corresponding answers.
