About four hundred and seventy students of Makerere University, whose results were delayed and had posed a lingering question on the graduation, have been cleared to graduate.
The students’ names have been missing on the graduation list, allegedly because their lecturers delayed submitting their marks to the respective university authorities for consideration for their graduation that is beginning tomorrow. However, 30 of those previously affected have had their graduation put on hold ‘because their marks were found vague’.
Earlier, the university officials had insinuated that the matter would addressed with a view to allow the would-be graduands graduate at the next convocation.
Meanwhile, preparations for the graduation are in advanced stages, with officials saying they are working round the clock to ensure the occasion is conducted successfully.
“Despite the earlier challenges, we are set and want this graduation to be held successfully,” a university official told EagleOnline.
