By Sunny A. David, Awka
The Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra State has reverted to writing to ‘pen on paper mode’ of examination for students.
Students would have to write the technical courses with pen on paper starting from this second semester.
This was contained in the second Semester Examination Time Tables for regular students and Continuing Education Programme (CEP), students released by Chairman, Examination Committee, Mr Uche Onyegbu.
According to the statement made available to Apex News, the institution during headship of Prof. Godwin Onu, the immediate past Rector, adopted Computer-Based Test (CBT) mode of examination for students, adding that the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, Oko chapter had been clamouring for a change from the CBT mode to pen on paper.
The CBT mode according to the union could not effectively be used to examine students in the system because of the nature of their courses.
Mr. Obinna Nwafor, a HND two student of Public Administration criticised the changeover, saying, “pen on paper mode of examination is not in the best interest of students.”
