On January, 10th, 2012 when the holidays were over, the term examinations were scheduled to begin at IGUMO. Within the next few weeks the students of IGUMO will have to show their full knowledge.
Despite the fact that, in general, the students were ready for their exams, some of them, however, managed to create the problems for themselves. During the pass-fail exam period the first-year students of IGUMO IT College nearly failed their mid-exams. The students of IGUMO Journalism College had hard times taking the exams, though everything ended well for some of them. Strange as it was, but the first-year students of IGUMO Advertising and PR Department and the third-year students of IGUMO Psychology Department managed to get into troubles during the pass-fail exam period.
The results of the examinations were a subject for discussion during the institute administration meeting which took place on the first day of the second term.
K.A.Magomedov, Deputy Rector for academic projects stated that 'IGUMO remains true to its mission – ultimate responsibility in education – and we act in accordance with the pass-fail exam clause. If a student fails only one pass-fail exam, he might be allowed to take the other examinations if the dean's office considers it possible. But if he has not been doing well and fails several pass-fail exams, in order to be allowed to take the rest examinations he would have first of all to pass all the exams failed.'
One should not be too slow because on the average our students have to take 4-5 exams (except for the first-year students who have fewer exams to take) –it corresponds to the curriculum. Thus, the sooner students pass the pass-fail exams, the fewer problems there will be in the end.
Of course, the situation described doesn't concern all the students of IGUMO. But everything may happen during the examinations period (for example those who have troubles passing the exams might actually be potentially the strongest students). We are sure that all of you had a really good rest during the holidays, accumulated the energy and filled in the power. Now everything is in your hands!
Good luck at your exams!12.01.2012
