The chief editor of this site has received credible information that students at the University of Nairobi (UoN) have more than once considered to stage a protests over missing marks.
Early this month, this site exposed the notorious departments which stay with unmarked exam papers years after exams without marking them. Perhaps when they guess results when they finally post them.
History and some sections of Political Science departments are said to be the most notorious in delaying dissemination of marks; this leads to lost marks which then forces students to repeat units.
‘It is very stressful that our marks sometimes miss because lecturers delay marking the answer sheets until they get lost’, a student wrote on their WhatsApp group.
On Monday this week the protest was averted after a section of the students met the Dean, who promised to sort out the issue, a student confirmed.
‘Tomorrow 11 a.m Gandhi statue. #operationbringbackourmarks’, an alert to the group said on Sunday
Most of the students didn’t show up but the few met the Dean and that seemed to have quelled the impending protest.
‘You guys have let us down. We were expecting you but its only me (name withheld) who turned up. Anyway, we’ve met the dean and had a meeting with him. He texted the chairman and told us that this week he’ll be meeting all departure chairmen. Expect results to be released in volumes’, a student posted.
