Worried that certain factors may have influenced the first class degrees obtained by some students, Ignatius Ajuru University of Education Senate during its statutory meeting on Wednesday July 28, 2021 decided that all graduating students for the year 2021 on Cumulative Grade Point Average of 4.5 points and above should make themselves available on Thursday August 5, 2021 at the ICT Centre main campus by 11am prompt for a qualifying test.
Senate took this decision as part of measures to ensure that these students merit the first class degree status so obtained. All those affected are therefore advised to show up at the ICT Centre for the qualifying test in their own interest.
