Students at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) have been told they will have no written exams at the end of this college year.
It comes after Government announced an extension of the closure of schools and colleges until Sunday 19 April in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This closure announcement means that LYIT will remain physically closed to students until at least 19 April.
The Institute’s academic calendar had scheduled teaching to run for 13 weeks, finishing on Friday 1 May.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Institute has decided to finish teaching at the end of Week 11 (Friday, 3 April) and no new material will be covered by lecturers after this date.
A spokesperson for the LYIT told students “End of semester, college-based, written exams will NOT go ahead and will instead be replaced by alternative assessments which will be submitted at different stages during the 4-5 weeks after the Easter break.
“All students will receive details of the alternative assessment schedule from their relevant School by Friday 3 April.
“In the meantime, please continue to engage with your lecturers and check your college email and Blackboard for further messages.”Tags:
