Unisa extends undergrad exams

The University of South Africa (Unisa) has extended undergraduate examinations for two weeks due to challenges with study material for students.

Unisa acting deputy registrar, Professor Chris Swanepoel, says they will be split into two portions to allow for students to choose when they want to write exams.

There has been miscommunication on whether postgraduate students will also be affected.

There would be two opportunities for students to write. Those that could study from the beginning can follow the original timetable, and those who have challenges can write at the end of the period in those modules affected.
