Eastern Mediterranean university online final exam
Good day, students of EMU as well as those it may concern. It seems that eastern Mediterranean university is trying to keep us in the dark about how we will be writing our final exams. And we the students need to feel safe about our health hoping they’ll make the right decision without jeopardizing our cgpa and graduation. Exams in September should not be an option because it just prolongs the stress, we need to relax during our break to maintain sanity.. There are only very few disadvantages of online classes and the advantages outweigh the disadvantages especially at a time like this. Nobody is going to be willing to risk their life in order to avoid cheating during exams which to some extent is very obviously inevitable. The fact is it would seem that at a time like this, the university would much rather decide to put our health as top priority but that doesn’t seem at all like the case. It is not fair on students as well as lecturers, be it the ones who are in support and those who are opposed to the idea of a face to face examination. Not only is this idea putting individuals at risk physically but also psychologically as well. So many people have been living in fear of the worst since the spread of this deadly virus in the TRNC and the thought of interacting with people is much dreaded. This petition has been made genuinely for the people who already know all this and yet don’t know how to go about speaking up or opposing their idea. I believe the best way to do this is online as it has proven more effective both in the past and since we started it this year. I hope we all take up the courage to sign this petition as it’s in our best interest. Remember that silence can otherwise be taken as consent so it’s time we speak up.
