Results of the second semester exams at the Advanced School of Mass Communication will be published in the days ahead. Given the context in which the exams were written, student’s expectation for the said results are mixed.
Marked by the covid-19 sanitary crisis, the examinations went on with rigor, respecting the barrier measures of putting on face masks and not exceeding 50 candidates in the different exam halls.
For students of the different fields, it is their last check point, especially for those who didn’t make it during the first semester and were putting their hopes in this semester. Failure this time around will imply either repeating the course next year or the class as a whole.
Asmac students share mixed with feelings about their results. Some are pessimistic while others are confident. This is the case of NCHINGOU AMY, a first-year journalism student who says, “I remain optimistic, l already see myself in J2”.
However, that’s not the same enthusiasm for others. For a second-year student in publishing, “I remain tensed because the general performance was quite good but the continuous assessment (CA) marks were poor since it accounts for 60% of the marks”.
More still, some students blame the sanitary crisis if their results may not come positive. This is because they had been exempted from classes and lessons during the national lock down and online classes which were not accessible to all.
While some are hoping to pass, other students already find themselves re-sitting the different courses. Fingers remain crossed as each waits for the final verdict which is yet to come.
