 The Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe has said that students across all levels will be writing their first semester examinations after the Nigerian Universities Games Association (NUGA).

 The VC made this clear in an interview with UNILAG Sun last week while outlining the school’s plans for accommodation during the upcoming NUGA games.

Recall that the previous university calendar arranged for students in their third to final years to sit for their first semester examinations before the games. Freshmen and second year students would afterwards write after the games.

The Vice chancellor however explained that upon careful consideration of different factors, the University has decided to shift examinations across all levels till April.

Speaking further, Prof. Ogundipe said all students will vacate the school hostels by the first week of March in order to accommodate participants from other schools during the NUGA games. 

“The students will vacate by the first week of March. Initially, we said year 3 and 4 will have their exams before the NUGA GAMES, but we’ve reconsidered. Everyone will be writing after,” he said.
