MAKERERE University students whose names did not appear on the graduation list on Thursday camped at the School of Social Sciences demanding the administration add their names to the list.



This after the university released the second draft list of those who will graduate this month but over 200 students’ names were missing which forced them to seek a meeting with the vice chancellor that did not yield any results.



Some of the students who spoke to New Vision said they were shocked to realise that they were not going to graduate because of missing marks and every time they try to rectify the problem they are told that the university system used to enter marks has been closed and will have to wait and graduate in 2017 which they say they cannot accept.



The guild president David Bala said they are in talks with the university to ensure that they re-open the system and all students who have cleared the univertsity requirements are included on the final list to be released before the end of the week.

 

“As leaders what we are trying to do is monitor the situation at all colleges because when we leave it to the registrars, there is laxity. We want the issue to be handled before Friday” Bala said.
