UL Admits Blunder…Apologizes To Candidates

The University of Liberia says it sincerely regrets the sudden postponement of the Saturday, June 22, 2013, Entrance Examinations due to circumstances beyond its control.

In a release issued yesterday in Monrovia, the UL Administration said it is the policy of the University of Liberia to protect the integrity of the exams by printing the materials as close as possible to the exam time.

The administration noted that after successfully printing and dispatching test materials to the leeward counties, a technical breakdown of IT and reproduction equipment occurred resulting in the difficulty of producing adequate test copies of the exam for Central Monrovia and its immediate environs.

“In spite of this, the Committee had hoped it could still administer the exam as scheduled. The University was in constant communication with its county supervisors and coordinators, and according to them, the examination was going on smoothly,” the release added.

“The University of Liberia, therefore, wishes to sincerely apologize to parents, applicants and the general public for the inconvenience experienced as a result of Saturday’s unfortunate event. The University is taking steps to prevent the recurrence of this unfortunate incident,” the release noted.

According to the release, the administration of the exams will be held only in the Monrovia area on July 13, 2013. It said in the meantime, the exams administered in the leeward counties will remain valid.

The University of Liberia said the entrance exams for the Graduate Programs and the College of General Studies scheduled for June 29, 2013 remains unchanged.
