A. Information To Parents on Upcoming Students Online Second Semester Examination 2019/2020

Dear Esteemed Parents, I bring you warm felicitations. I hope you are staying safe and healthy. To God be the glory.

You will recall that in view of the COVlD-l9 pandemic, both the federal and state governments directed all educational institutions to shut down as a proactive measure to contain the spread of the pandemic and to save lives. Babcock University shut down operations in compliance with this directive. It is instructive to note that, at the time the school had to shut down, the University was only a week to administering the second semester examinations to end the 20l9/2020 academic session. The University, however, in tandem with her custom and responsibility, has decided now to administer the second semester examinations.

These examinations will be conducted online via the Computer Based Examination approach. This approach has already been in use in the University over the years to conduct the academic assessment of her students for some Courses. All students are already used to this examination platform and would not need any training to use the platform.You will agree with me that in order to further safeguard and secure the lives of our dear children/wards, this model is much better to adopt in the meantime even if the government gives order/directive allowing for the reopening of educational institutions.

To this end, the new examination timetable for the second semester examinations will be made available, a week to the commencement of the examinations to students.

Dear parent, for the purpose of the examinations, all students will use either a smartphone, tablet or laptop/dcsktop computer. We seek your collaboration in this regard. Please ensure that your child/childrcn/ward/wards fully charge their devices at least an hour before taking each examination. It is also expedient that students have sufficient amount of data on their devices for the examinations.

For any issues or problems that may arise while writing the examination, a chatting facility will be provided on the examination platform to give students real-time and appropriate response. A robust hclpdcsk has also been set up by the University to offer solutions to any student who experiences any problems in the course of the examinations.

We enjoin our parent, as a worthy partner of the University, to please ensure that your child/children/ward/wards complete their registration by closing their second semester registration on the UMIS portal of the University to grant them eligibility to write the examinations. F urther detailed information in this regard shall be communicated shortly.

The University solicits your maximum and sacrificial support for the University at this unprecedented time, by providing your child/chiIdren/ward/wards with all encouragements and supports, including but not limited to the requisite materials/devices/data that they need for the examinations.

The University wishes to inform you that, the University’s Bursary will communicate necessary information and instructions regarding students with outstanding payments in another subsequent communication. Dear esteemed parent, Babcock University hereby reiterates its plea to you to ensure your child/children/ward/wards sit for each examination. The University will not entertain any excuse for failure by any student to write each examination in the course for which he/she has registered. To this end, a copy of the new second semester examination timetable will be sent to all students.

We thank you much for your anticipated cooperation, which will make this endeavor a success. With love from us, please Stay Safe; Save Lives.
