OAU loses accreditation for law, dentistry, botany

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has reportedly suspended the university’s law, dentistry, medical rehabilitation, and botany programmes.

In text messages, the school asked admission seekers for the 2018/2019 academic year they will not be given admission into Law, Botany, Dentistry, Fine Arts and Medical Rehabilitation as JAMB had so advised due to accreditation issues.

“Your first choice course did not receive accreditation. Login to your profile and change course/institution,” the text message read.

When contacted, OAU spokesperson, Abiodun Olanrewaju said the institution “will sort it out”.

The spokesperson of JAMB Fabian Benjamin advised “the candidates to go on and change” the courses.

The spokesperson of the National Universities Commission (NUC) in a text message Sunday night told PREMIUM TIMES the programmes had been denied accreditation, but said it did not translate to full suspension.

“In the actual sense, Medical Rehabilitation has full accreditation status,” he said.

Nigerian Universities to Revert to Five Point Scale of Grading System

www.nuc.edu.ng | National Universities Commission : NUC

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has directed that all Nigerian Universities should revert to the five point scale of grading system hitherto in use with effect from the 2018/2019 academic session.

UNIVERSITIES TO REVERT TO FIVE POINT SCALE OF GRADING SYSTEM

In a statement signed by Dr G.B. Kumo, Director Academic Planning for the Executive Secretary of NUC, the Commission stated that it has been inundated with series of inquiries particularly from the International Organizations and Foreign Universities on the status of the four point scale in use and previous degrees issued during the five point scale.

Presenting the letter on the Grading System and Degree classification in the Nigerian University System to Members of Senate, the Director Academic Planning Unit, Professor Vincent Asuru said that the issue of course credit system of Grade Point Average in the Nigerian University System was discussed by Directors of Academic Planning Units early 2017 when they met and that the issue of the removal of pass degree was discussed leading to the adoption of a four point grading system.

However, the four point scale which some universities started implementing was also found to have severe implementation shortcomings with some universities observing serious difficulties getting students to acquire average class of degree while the scale made it easier for students to have first class degrees.

Professor Vincent Asuru however stated that Ignatius Ajuru University of Education had maintained the five point scale of grading system before the directives from the National Universities Commission ( NUC).
