“Examinations would soon start. Please note that no student, fresh or stale can write examination without registration. Otherwise, if for any reason you cannot register, you may take the option of deferring your studentship or suspension of studies till next session. Let me inform you that with the online registration, it is now practically impossible to sneak into the examination hall to write paper.”
Akintunde, who enjoined the students to promptly do their registration to avoid embarrassment during examinations, described attempts to write exams without registration as malpractice.
“You also need to know that if you have not registered and you manage to sit for examination, there would not be any shortcut to upload your results online,” he said. Akintunde advised the students to desist from bad friends and peer pressure that could influence them against the code of conduct and ethics of the college.
“Let me warn you against rape, drug abuse, cultism, fighting/assault, indecent dressing and other vices. The college management has zero tolerance for all these. If you are caught, you have to face the consequences.”
