OAU Post-UTME Candidates Embark On Last Minute 'Crashing'
By Akinola Kehinde
The Obafemi Awolowo University is a hive of activities as scores of prospective students have arrived on campus in preparation for the upcoming Post UTME screening exercise which has been scheduled to take place tomorrow Saturday 8th August.
Being on the eve of D-Day, all halls of residence, academics and reading rooms are full of tenacious students girding up their loins to become successful in their examination.
Many of them whose places of residence are far from, or who came from distant states, have already arrived campus a week or two to the screening day, burning the midnight oil and making all necessary efforts to achieve their best in the screening test. This many undergraduates refer to as 'crashing'. The question that has however continually come up is that; how far with today's crashing influence the candidate's performance tomorrow?
With referenace to the success of the students, various tutorial classes were established all in the hope of bringing their dreams to fruition. Our advice to all potential students is to employ all the necessary tools at their disposal to make the most of what these tutorials offered in terms of help and support.
In the course of the exercise, it is important to be mindful of the strictness of the university with examination malpractices. All the students are therefore encouraged to distance themselves from all kinds of conduct that can implicate them.
Furthermore, students are, in the process of examination, advised to be equally responsive to instructions.
For students that will be arriving on campus on the screening day (or probably who have not known their screening centres) are urged to make sure that they come in good time to avoid traffic congestion which may delay their early arrivals.
We, at OAU Peeps, wish you the best of luck in your examinations.
