Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Law Development Center (LDC) has rescheduled the supplementary examinations to when tertiary institutions will reopen for physical learning in November.
1,117 students who failed and did not graduate in June were supposed to sit for supplementary examinations next month.
Frank Nigel Othembi, the LDC Executive Director says that they hope to finalize the process of arranging the supplementary papers when students resume face to face learning.
“The exams have not yet been scheduled. LDC has not finalized the program for resuming physical exams. The exams will be scheduled when LDC resumes physical learning.” Othembi says.
Agatha Atuhaire who is supposed to sit for supplementary exams says that LDC cannot schedule the examinations without the knowledge of the students.
On Wednesday during his address to the nation, President Museveni said that post-secondary learning institutions will reopen in November with strict observation of standard operating procedures and vaccination of students.
In June 2021, records at LDC showed that a total of 1,682 students sat for the exams with a 90 percent failure rate, 70 percent partially failing with re-takes and twenty percent failed and were discontinued.
LDC is mandated to provide legal education to lawyers and non-lawyers, research topical legal issues, contribute to legal reforms, produce legal publications, teaching materials and law reports, and also provide community legal services.
