CCCJ: Exams should remain online for Semester 2 2022-2023
A short notice has been given that all exams will be face-to-face. The abrupt announcement this a great disadvantage for students, because it will not allow us to prepare ourselves for the exams fully; nor will it allow us to get a summer job to aid us in our tuition payments and take care of our daily college expenses. In addition, there are outstanding course works which will add to the stress of preparing for these exams.
Please sign this petition, and share it with every college student you know, to demand from the Council of Community Colleges of Jamaica to keep the online exams, for all colleges in the academic year 2022 - 2023.
Why is this important?
The abrupt announcement to cancel online exams is affecting students both psychologically and financially because we are not mentally and physically prepared. Most J1 job opportunity starts on May 15th, and with exams ending May 26- June 2, 2023, most if not all students may not be able to obtain a summer job with the current exam schedule given this minimal time and short notice of this announcement.
In addition, the evening school students will be at an advantage because their exams will be online, as opposed to the day school students. If this petition rules in the student's favor, then we will be more prepared for face-to-face exams in the upcoming academic year, 2023 to 2024.
Add your name to the petition, and share it everywhere to demand that exams remain online!
