Egerton university on Monday morning released its updated policy on resits and discontinuation of students who fail to meet the academic requirements set by the management.
According to the policy, a student who fails up to 25% of the total Credit Factors taken in an academic year shall be required to take resit examinations in all the failed courses.
Additionally, if the student fails to resit a course, they will be required to repeat a whole academic year ‘provided the student shall be allowed to repeat the academic year once only.’
According to the policy that was published on the university website and Facebook page “A student who fails more than 25% but up to 50% of the total Credit Factors taken in an academic year shall be required to repeat the academic year, provided the student shall be allowed to repeat the academic year once only.”
The university has also indicated that it will allow students who fail a course during a repeated academic year to resit the failed course before being allowed to proceed for graduation.
The new policy also outlined the procedure for discontinuation of students on academic grounds.
According to the policy statement, a student shall be discontinued on academic grounds if s/he fails more than 50% of all Credit Factors taken in an academic year.
The same will apply to a student who fails a resit examination in a repeated academic year or fails to register for, and/or attend scheduled classes for two weeks or longer consecutively or cumulatively without consent of the Senate.
Students who commit an examination malpractice shall also be liable for a discontinuation according to the university’s new policy that was ratified by the university Senate.
