Examinations are underway

- Wits University

Statement from the Senior Executive Team (11:00):


All examinations went ahead without disruption yesterday. This morning’s examinations are currently underway.


We apologise for not informing staff and students about the closure of the Enoch Sontonga Gate this morning. We will keep you informed of all changes to access points to the campus going henceforth.


There was an incident in the Exams Hall on the Wits Education Campus last night which was thwarted by quick security action. We have heightened security in and around all examination venues, libraries, learning areas and other key buildings on our campuses.


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. Read the full judgment here.


The Campus Housing and Residence Life Office will communicate directly with students today regarding accommodation for deferred examinations. Please direct all queries in this regard to the Campus Housing and Residence Life Office.
