The Management of the University of Cross River State at its meeting of Monday, September 06, 2021 approved the requirements/modalities for writing the Mop-up Examinations in the University as follows:
- The list of all students who are owing school fees from 201/2015 to 2019/2020 academic sessions shall be displayed in all Departments immediately.
- Only those who have completed the payment of all their fees would be allowed to write the examinations.
- Those who wrote previous examinations but their scripts were not marked, because of the “No Fee, No Examinations Policy” of the University, but have now paid their fees are qualified to write the mop-up examinations.
- All affected students who should in addition to being up-to-date in fee payment are to pay the sum of Two thousand Naira (N2,000.00) only per course for the number of courses outstanding. Payment shall be done online. Affected students are required to log on to the school’s portal and select “Mop-up fees”, then generate and print an “Authority to Pay” (Payment Invoice) and proceed to any Commercial Bank to pay.
- The students who are qualified to write the mop-up examinations as per the guidelines above should thereafter go and register for the courses they are writing in the mop-up examinations in their respective departments at no other cost than what they had already paid in No. 4 above.
- In view of the time needed to go through the process above; the mop-up examinations would start from 27th September, 2021.
- Since two semesters are involved, the examinations shall take place as follows:
- The 1st Semester Mop-up examinations will run from 27th September – 2nd October, 2021.
- The 2nd Semester Mop-up examination will hold from 4th October – 9th October, 2021.
- Each department will, through the Office of the Head of Department and Time-table Officer, draw up a time table for the First and Second Semester Mop-up examinations for their courses.
- The Timetable for both examinations will be out not later than 13th September, 2021. This is to enable the students revise properly for the examinations.
- The Heads of Departments should ask the immediate last Lecturer who taught the course to examine all the students in that course.
- The time table will make provision for all courses in the first and second semesters. The examinations should be neatly separated and would not run concurrently as this may adversely affect those who may have need to write examinations in both semesters.
It is expected that all concerned will take necessary steps to give effect to these directives.
