About 19,383 level 100 students in the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology had their first ever experience of university examination in the middle of the first semester in the 2017/2018 academic year.
The exams commenced on Monday October 30, 2017 and is expected to be completed on Friday, November 3.
Mid semester examination is conducted in KNUST every semester and often graded 30% out of the total score of students marks in a semester course.
This is the third consecutive semesters since the vice chancellor of KNUST, Professor Obiri-Danso initiated a one week period for the conduct of mid-semester examination in all six colleges in KNUST.
Essentially, this is equally the first time in the history of KNUST when a one week break from academic activities will be given to students for other extracurricular activities. Hence the period for all college and departmental annual week celebrations to be held, including the 55th SRC week celebration.
