UFS postpones examinations to Monday 2 November 2015
2015-10-23

The management of the University of the Free State (UFS) decided today, in line with other universities in the country, to postpone the main examination to Monday 2 November 2015 and the additional examination to 23 November 2015.

The decision comes after students across the country took part in a protest action against the increase of fees in 2016. Students from the UFS participated in the protest from Tuesday 20 October 2015.

Moving the examination by one week will afford all students the opportunity to prepare for their examination and to take the additional assessment opportunities they missed during this past week to make up their predicate mark.

The exam timetable sequence/order remains exactly the same as scheduled and the changed examination timetables have been published on the UFS website; Official Timetables. Students are requested to note the exemptions to the postponement. These exceptions are also published on the UFS website.

Academic and administrative activities will resume on all three campuses of the UFS on Monday 26 October 2015.
