George Campus

08/06/2015

The mid-year examination period at NMMU George Campus commenced on Wednesday, 3 June and will conclude with the last paper to be written on Thursday, 23 June; therefore an annual campaign to promote academic integrity is in full swing.

According to David Alexander, Senior Manager: Academic Administration at NMMU George Campus, this campaign has always been well received at the university’s campus in George with the added bonus that not one single incident of dishonesty was reported during recent examination periods.

“The central theme of the campaign will once again be conveyed into our examination venues during the 2015 mid-year assessments with invigilators donning promotional t-shirts and strategically placed pull-up banners in the venues to reinforce the message,” said Alexander.

During the current exam period the majority of the more than 1300 registered students at NMMU George Campus will be assessed in at least 107 modules with the largest group writing in a single session being 272 students and the smallest session a group of only six students.
