The administration block of the Methodist University
The Private Universities Association of Ghana (PUSAG) has expressed its displeasure over the directive from the National Accreditation Board (NAB) to withdraw students who do not meet university entry requirements.
According to the association, the NAB should address the issue carefully to prevent the students from being affected negatively.
The NAB has ordered the authorities of the Methodist University College, Ghana, to withdraw 1,400 unqualified students it had admitted to pursue various degree programmes.
The Board also ordered the school to halt all admissions until the 1,400 students are withdrawn.
Speaking to Citi News
, the Methodist University Branch Representative to the Association, Aaliyah Mahmud suggested that “this issue can be tackled in a different way by maybe asking these students to better their grades before graduating from the institution, but telling them to withdraw is not the best solution.”
According to her, although the students may not have performed satisfactorily in High School, but they are doing well in the university.
Mahmud further advised the NAB to reconsider its decision to enable the students complete their education.
Meanwhile, the NAB says it sympathizes with the students but the University will face sanctions if they refuse to adhere to the directive.
