Academic Integrity: BUK Suspends Students Involved In Examination Malpractices



The Bayero University Kano (BUK) has taken disciplinary action against students involved in examination misconduct during the last academic session.

News About Nigeria reports that a total of 29 students were suspended, while three others have been suspended for a specific period.

The suspended students were found guilty of engaging in malpractices during the exams, violating the university’s rules and regulations.

The management of BUK took the decision to suspend them after thorough investigations and a fair hearing.

However, three students who were accused of examination misconduct, were exonerated due to lack of evidence.

The university’s management found no wrongdoing on their part and cleared them of any wrongdoing.

The university’s decision to suspend the students serves as a warning to others who may consider engaging in similar behavior.

BUK said it is committed to maintaining academic integrity and upholding the highest standards of conduct among its students.

A statement by the Ag. Director, Directorate of Examinations, Admissions and Records, Aminu Kurawa, a copy of which was made available to journalists stated that both undergraduate and postgraduate were affected in the exercise.

“The Senate at its 413 meeting held on 3rd July, 2024, expelled 29 students, rusticate 3 and warned 15 others for being found involved in examination misconduct.

“The decision was in accordance with General Examinations and Academic Regulations (GEAR) and of General Regulations Governing Postgraduate Studies (GRGPS) respectively,” the statement noted.

Earlier, the management of Kwara State University expelled 175 students from its campus in Malete, due to their involvement in various infractions that contravene the university’s codes of conduct and academic regulations.
