Examinations to continue as scheduled

- Wits University

Update from the Senior Executive Team (10:00):


A group of students launched an urgent application to interdict the examinations at Wits University. The matter was heard in the South Gauteng High Court yesterday. Judgement will be handed down tomorrow Thursday, 3 November 2016. 

The University confirms that examinations will continue as scheduled. 

The University has informed individuals who have good reason not to sit for an examination, that the individuals can apply for a deferred examination.

Safety and security during examinations

Please note that in order to ensure the safety and security of students during the examination period and to ensure that examinations are not disrupted, additional security checks have been put in place. Vehicles, bags and people may be searched before entering venues.

Toiletry bags will be accommodated and female security officers will be on hand to assist with the searches. While we strongly discourage students from bringing bags to examination venues, they will be accommodated outside examination venues if required. Please refrain from storing valuables in bags.

Social activities

We remind all students and staff that as per our usual policies, no social activities are allowed during the examination period.
