Students of the Ghana School of Law on Thursday (May 18, 2017) refused to write an exam because some of the questions were not related to the subject they had prepared for.

The students explained that even though they were writing a paper on Criminal Procedure, two of the questions were unrelated to the subject.

One of the students who spoke to Accra-based Citi FM said: “When we got to the exams hall, we had six questions on the exam sheet and we were told question two had been cancelled, so we were left with five questions to answer of which we were supposed to answer four.”

 

“Then we realised the question one and question three fell under a different topic altogether, which is evidence. So what it basically means is that we had only three questions to answer. How can a student answer four questions out of three questions in the exams hall?” the student added.

The student admitted that there could have been a mishap which cannot be blamed on anybody.

He, therefore, asked the authorities to “go back, bring another set of questions that fall under what we have learned so far so that we can adequately write an exam on it. That is why we didn’t write the exam today [Thursday]."
