ALL STUDENTS

To All Students

 

As we slowly get deeper into the second term of 2021, let me send a word of appreciation on how you have been conducting yourselves when it comes to College rules and Covid-19 regulations.There are few cases, which the

Warden and HC are dealing with, wherein students are found with alcohol in the hostel.

Kindly be reminded that you have signed a code of conduct and you are all expected to comply with it.

With regard to Covid-19 regulations, it is compulsory that if you have flue symptoms you do the following:

  • Do not go to class;
  • Inform the House Committee Member in your block or corridor and Warden;
  • Inform Mrs Elana Kitching or Ms Maryke van der Merwe via an sms or whatssap that you have these symptoms therefore, you will miss classes and or tests or examinations;
  • Do not go to offices, kitchen, gymnasium and any public space unless you are asked to;

To contain the spread of this virus depends on all of us as individuals.

It is still compulsory to:

  • Be screened for COVID-19 each morning before class at the Boer Goat Hall;
  • Wash your hands regularly;
  • Wear a mask (over your nose as well) all the time in public space including in class. A lecturer has a right to take you out of class / test / examination if you do not comply
  • Sanitise your hands regularly;
  • Sanitise any object before and after touching it, those include showers or bath rooms, door handles, toilet flushing handles;
  • Do not share stationary, pens, pencils, rulers, etc.;

 

Failure to comply in any of the regulations is a serious offence.

 

Let us work very hard to have a Covid-19 – free campus.

MARKS PORTAL – ALL STUDENTS

A Copy of the Marks will only be put up on the noticeboard from test 2 onwards. Make sure you frequently look on the portal if there are any marks available.

Predi – This is your semester mark.  This mark will be re-calculated after every test or practical mark is slotted into the portal.  The average of the best 2 test marks will be used for your final semester mark in addition to any other assessment marks for example practical marks.  If Test Weights is applicable, the Predi will be calculated according to the % of the test weights (not the average between two tests).

Remarks – The Remarks will show “No Admission” until all tests and practical marks are slotted in. Only then will the remark be finalised to “Admission”. If it stays No Admission after Semester Day, you may not write the Examination.

Other Remarks

Incomplete – Part of the subject was not done or passed.  Such a student will then need to re-register for this subject the next year. This is usually subject codes that end with a 0 (continuous evaluation) or subjects where there is theory and practical classes. A student needs to do everything as on the timetable to be able to pass a subject.  If one part is outstanding, you will fail.

Attendance < 80% - You do not have class attendance to qualify to write examination.  No matter what your predi is.

The requirements are 70% for Theory classes and 80% for all subjects ending with a 0.

After the Examinations the Remark will change to Pass or Fail. If you qualify for a Supplementary Exam, the remark will be Supp Exam and if you qualify for a ReExam, the remark will show ReExam.

MOST IMPORTANT – If you do not understand something, ask, do not assume or ask other students for guidance.
