63 students of the Bayero University, Kano (BUK) have been expelled from the institution over their involvement in examination malpractice.
13 others students were also rusticated for one year by the university for a similar offence.
The school’s Director, Examination, Admissions and Records (DEAR), Amina Umar-Abdullahi made this known in a statement to newsmen in Kano.
According to her, the action followed a recommendation submitted by the Senate Committee on Examinations Misconduct and Leakages approved on Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2019 at the 374th meeting of the highest decision making body of the institution.
She disclosed that the expelled students included 10 from the School of Postgraduate Studies, 10 from the School of Continuing Education and seven each from the Faculties of Basic Medical Sciences and Computer Science.
“However, the Faculties of Education and Management Sciences have six each and Engineering, FEES and Physical Sciences four and three, respectively.
“The Faculty of Arts and Islamic Studies have two expelled students and Faculties of Communication, Allied Health Sciences and Life Sciences have the least number of affected candidates with only one student each.”
She said the Senate had equally directed that 19 other students be served with warning letters for other infractions.
