Students gear up for Makerere graduation

Graduands started collecting the invitation cards and gowns ahead of Makerere University's 70th graduation ceremony where a total of 13,509 students are set to graduate with doctorates, masters, bachelors and diplomas in various courses. 420 will graduate with first class degrees after obtaining a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) above 4.40.

It is still unclear whether with just eight days to graduation, those with issues or who are missing on the list will be able to clear in time to graduate.
