As the year comes to an end, Zetech University students dived into their books for last minute revision for their end of semester exams ahead of the much awaited Christmas holidays. During this period, students were advised on Test anxiety which is a psychological condition in which people experience extreme distress and anxiety during testing situations.
While many people experience some degree of stress before and during exams, test anxiety can impair learning and hurt test performance. Commenting on how to overcome this condition, University Counsellor Jane Corazon counseled students on the importance of preparation for exams and guided them on how to undertake their tests successfully. Additionally, she noted that learners should get enough sleep, take deep breaths before the tackling questions and then handle them one question at a time.
During this period, students were also warned against cheating during the exams through the #ToaMwakenyaZetech campaign, following the University’s commitment to produce high quality professionals who will become well-rounded citizens who can effectively impact the social, political and economic world.
As the Varsity prepares to conclude the semester, the Registrar Academics’ Office announced that students would resume classes on 7th January 2019 for the January-April 2019 semester. Students are expected to report without fail as teaching will begin on this date,
“We are already prepared for the forthcoming semesters to allow students to start learning promptly as per the university schedule. I encourage every student to report on the first day to ensure they do not miss out.” said Peter Osumba, Registrar Academics. He added that Heads of Departments and lecturers will be available and on time for teaching to begin.
Indeed, we look forward to a successful 2019.
