Going forward the students among many accusations are blaming the data protection unit of the school for failing to update the records on their portals making the various portals of the students empty.

The University is expected to hold its graduation ceremony for the final year students in three weeks time, hence students are not able to track their academic performance as a result of the school refusing to update the portal.

Some Students Reactions

“This is a good act by the students, we are all behind them”.

“It’s unfair to be in school for four years without knowing your academic performance until graduation. This is a cheat and must be halted”. 

“The authority of the school must open the portal to make things transparent. They must do the right thing”.

“Another act of corruption by the authorities”.

The GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how high you scored in your courses on average. Using a scale from 1.0 to 4.0, your GPA tracks your progress during your studies. This number is used to assess whether you meet the standards and expectations set by the degree programme or university.

Your average GPA will change and vary throughout the years, but having in mind what your GPA is every semester will give you a good indication of how well you are doing in your courses overall (and, perhaps, whether you need to improve).
