MOE, TCJ, Council of Community Colleges of Jamaica should turn final exams to coursework

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

Due to the recent corona virus pandemic Prime Minister Andrew Holness has ordered schools at every level to be closed until after the Easter period. As a result of this order almost all the institutions have resorted to online classes. It is well known that not everybody can learn through this medium. This will hamper students studies for final exams. Not all students have a ready access to the internet at home.

The corona virus pandemic has caused many college students to be in a state of fear and panic. This has led to the mental incapacitation of most students, some either being stressed or experiencing some form of depression which as a result is hampering the ability to study.

Therefore it is with that in mind that we are petitioning for all final exams be given as take home coursework for us college students to have a chance of passing all our courses this semester. Thank you.
