However, some students from the School of Social Works and Social Administration are in panic over the issues of missing marks on their portals.
“For over one and half years, we have been going to the department inquiring why our results are not on the portal. Mr. Jimmy who fills in marks would say he had the results but needed confirmation from Dr Mugisha to upload them. We listened to him thinking that it will be worked on,” one of the graduands who preferred confidentiality revealed.
“At first, they said they never gave an appointment letter to the lecturer who taught us after going through their documents then they said he was signed to teach mop ups. The word mop up; it’s our first time to hear it in the whole session of orientation and fresher’s ball no one mentioned it,’’ he added.
“The syllabus was new which is a good thing but we never had any one to take us though what is on the syllabus and what is out so all our confidence was put to the department that do guide us on what we do. We therefore, request the university management to look into this matter seriously so that we don’t lose another year by telling us to re-do the paper yet we are about to graduate,’’ he concluded.
