Examinations are mandatory and must be taken at their scheduled time, except in cases of extreme compassion. The Dean can only grant permission for absence from the scheduled examinations after consultation with the concerned lecturer. In the case of missing exams due to compassionate reasons, students are required to sit an examination within one week of the original date. Please note that Testament’s policy is in compliance with NUC standards and there are no re-sit examinations. In the following academic year, students may retake a course only once to replace a low grade or failed course.
The following grading system is used:
Average undergraduate grades at Testament are in the 3.00 to 3.50 range. A very good work will merit a B. Only in exceptional cases will A be awarded. Graduate students are expected to maintain a GPA average of 3.0 to 4.0 range. For Postgraduate students, any grade below C is considered a failure, and no graduate student will be allowed to graduate with more than two D’s. When these standards are not met, the respective Heads of Department and Academic Deans will advise the student regarding modifications to the student’s programme to ensure his/her academic progress.
Students can formally appeal through the Academic Dean to the Academic Committee regarding their grades. Students should first seek to resolve the issue informally with the lecturer.
