Attempted interdict against examinations dismissed

- Wits University

Exams to go ahead as scheduled with the University's normal rules around exams and accommodation in place.


A group of students brought an urgent application to the South Gauteng High Court on Tuesday to interdict examinations at Wits University. They did not persist with this part of the application. This means that examinations go ahead at Wits University as planned.

A new application was made for the University to accommodate students in residence from now until the date of their deferred examinations. This application was dismissed by the court.

This means that:

  1. Examinations will go ahead as scheduled.
  2. The University’s normal rules around accommodation and deferred examinations apply.
