Unisa's provisional exam timetables changed due to amended registration dates

The University of South Africa (Unisa) has come under fire for the inconvenience caused by their revised exam timetable and their alleged poor communication.

Unisa's Deputy Registrar Prof Michael Temane says the dates released by the university were provisional.

Provisional always means that the final timetable can only be published after admissions to examinations have been finalised.

According to Temane, the exam timetable was changed because of amendments to the registration period.

Unisa did not go out of its way to simply change the timetable to disadvantage students. It was to take into account the tuition period and the amended registration dates.

Temane denied claims that the exams had been moved by over a month and explained that the changes were only adjusted by one week.
