Great Zimbabwe University Postpones Exams and Quickly Makes U turn
Great Zimbabwe University postpones exams and quickly makes U-turn. In a recent development, Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) which had previously suspended its end of semester examinations has issued another statement suspending the suspension.
The exams that had been scheduled to begin on 30 August had been postponed as a result of the current national Level Four COVID-19 lockdown which has been extended by an additional two weeks on Tuesday.
Great Zimbabwe’s registrar Snikiwe Gwatidzo’s statement on the postponement read:
"Notice is hereby given that following the extension of level 4 National Lockdown by Government on 24 August 2021, examinations that had been set to commence on the 30th of August 2021 have been further deferred to a later date.
"Please be advised that examinations will commence on the Monday which follows the lifting of the lockdown.
"In the meantime, students are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated and prepare for the examinations.
"Information pertaining to any changes will be posted on the University website: www.gzu.ac.zw.
U turn – the exams are proceeding as usual
However in less than a day the university had issued another statement saying the exams are proceeding as previously planned.
