A letter issued by University of Cape Coast (UCC); Studies of Education to all principals in the colleges of education has it that, some first batch of trainees offering degree programme and now in level 200 in the colleges of education have failed their resit papers. The letter signed by Prof. Christine Adu-Yeboah, follows a resit time table allotted for the second resit on various courses is starting today, Monday 14th October, 2019.
TWJ has learnt that, this is not the first time some trainees have failed their resit papers, rather, this is the first time UCC has recorded the highest number of failure in the just ended resit examination.
Some trainees were of the view that, their failure was as a result of the changed of programme which came without handouts for trainees to lay hands on. Others also blamed that, tutors who were supposed to take them through what they were supposed to do had no idea of what to teach, hence their fate were left to find ways and means to gather ideas in writing their examination. This led to more than 400 trainees being sacked from the colleges over poor academic performance in their first and second semester examinations which exceeded the required number of credit hours pegged by the colleges affiliate university, UCC.
Below is the letter and time table issued by University of Cape Coast on the second resit paper.
