The Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has said that despite the government’s reopening of schools, its decision to conduct the end-of-second semester examination for the 2019/2020 academic year online remains unchanged.
The Institute initially plan to conduct the online examination from May 25 to June 10, 2020 but was later postponed.
The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo addressing the citizenry on Sunday, May 31 announced the reopening of schools for final year students in the country for them to complete their academic year and proceed to sit for their final examination.
According to the Management of GIJ, the online examination is scheduled for 8 June 2020 to 26 June 2020 as earlier announced.
Akufo-Addo on March 15 directed for the closure of all schools throughout the country as part of measures to curb the novel coronavirus, since late March this year, all school activities came to a halt.
This challenge led to the restructuring of the academic calendar and the migration of tuition online.
The school’s management repeats that “all previous arrangements regarding examination for the second semester of 2019/2020 academic year remain unchanged.”
