The significance of semester one acacemic results cannot be overemphasised and College data are clear proof that students who fail to secure the expected credits and marks do so because of poor semester one results.

The College Director thus wishes to meet all College freshers and selected other students ahead of semester one examinations in order to discuss and review individual study plans.

The majority of these semester one interviews will take place during the week starting on January 9th and in the first half of the week starting on January 16th.
