The University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) has rescheduled the first semester examinations for students after deciding on it in a meeting on Tuesday 23rd May to consider the request from the students in a petition.
The petition was endorsed by the SRC president and presented to the administration to reschedule the examinations due to the current situation on the ground with the students protest on the Defence Cooperation Agreement (DCA).
The first semester examinations were scheduled from the 18th-31st May, but due to the situation the examinations are now to commence on 29th May and to conclude on the 7th of June.
Many students claimed that they are not mentally ready at this time to sit for their exams due to the current situation and that was why they requested for the exams to be rescheduled.
The notice of the changes to the examination dates was released by the University’s Acting Registrar, Mr. Roboam Kakap.
