Students of the University of Ghana are not happy with President Nana Addo’s policy to have them run a double track system and hence wants to demonstrate.
Students of the university of Ghana says no to the double track system they are about to be enrolled on.
This year’s undergraduate students of the University of Ghana (UG) have been split into two streams.
Subject to government’s approval, the academic calendar is scheduled to commence on January 14, while lectures will start on January 19.
The university’s arrangement is similar to the double track system being practised under the free senior high school (SHS) programme.
The academic calendar has been structured in such way that only the students at Level 100 and the final year students (Level 400) will be reporting to school this January.
The students at Levels 200 and 300 will remain at home until March, by which time the first and final year students would have had their semester come to an end.
Per the arrangement, teaching will end for the Levels 100 and 400 students on Friday, February 26, after which they will write their first semester examinations which will last over a two-week period.
The first semester will finally end on Sunday, March 21.
The two groups of students are expected to report back to school again between Thursday, June 17 and Sunday, June 20, to begin the second semester.
The first semester for students at Levels 200 and 300 will commence on Monday, April 5. Before then, however, the university campus will be disinfected to ensure it is safe for habitation, Graphic Online reported.
The students organized a demonstration today and even trended it on Twitter. They are not happy at all as they want the decision to be rescinded.
