Report reaching liveschoolnews domain has it that Students of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) have called on to the school authorities to upgrade the results of two of the general courses that was released this week.
Liveschoolnews gathered that the two courses the students are appealing to be upgrade are General Studies (GNS) 311 and Graduate Self-Employment (GSE) 301.
The students bemoan that If nothing was done to upgrade the results, many would have an additional year.
The two courses were done on computer during the first semester examination held four weeks ago.
A 300-Level Zoology student, who wish to remain anonymous said: “I am not happy. When I checked my results, it was F in both courses. I appeal to the management to upgrade the results because I do not want an extra year.”
Another student, who simply gave her name as Blessing, said: “I really wish this was a dream because I still can’t believe I am having carry overs in both GNS and GSE. Having carry overs in both courses is a sure sign of extra year for me. I will be happy if the school can look into this and upgrade our results. The results are so bad.”
A Law student said: “I prepared very well for these exams and I never expected this kind of results. I had E grade in GSE and F in GNS. These results will surely have a strong effect on my CGPA. All I hope and pray for now is for the authorities to seat and deliberate on how they can help us.”
Meanwhile, the Students’ Union president, AbdulMalik Aremu, has called on all affected students to print out their grades and submit them at the union office as evidence of mass failure to present before the Vice-Chancellor. He, however, stressed that doing so does not automatically mean that the school would upgrade the results, but he hoped the management would do so.
Liveschoolnews gathered that over 60 per cent of the students, who took the exams failed. GNS 311 is a two-Unit course, while GSE 301 is a three-Unit course.
