The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) according to the Nigerian Tribune News, has defended the N20,000 fee charged for remarking students’ exam scripts, saying the fee is payable by students who out of dissatisfaction with their scores in a course, file an appeal for remarking.
According to Tribune News, Director of Media and Publicity, NOUN, Ibrahim Sheme, made this known on Tuesday in Abuja. He however insisted that no student’s result would be unduly withheld.
Sheme said that all final year students who are yet to get their results should not panic as the results would be released before convocation ceremony in January 2019. He said all students in this category do not need to pay anything.
While reacting to allegations of extortion by some students of the university who claimed that they were charged N20,000 per course to reassess their results, he stressed that results were released in batches since the university could not afford to wait for all the results to be ready at the same before they are released.
