For Sharifatou Amidou, a level 3 Geography student who is to start exams on the 16th February 2017, “we have enough time to prepare and I am doing my best to ensure that I make it. I study day and night to meet up as well as consult the internet and library to improve on myself as I prepare for the examinations. As students we have study groups were we try to assist each other by answering past questions and broadening our knowledge on aspects we do not well master”
While Ignes Flore, a Master 2 student of the Faculty of Law is of a different view as she says “the time is too short for me to catch-up but I am doing my best. The new framework of the Post graduate School ensures that students work really harder. The 8 courses I am to write this first semester are bulky but I will do my best to come out victorious.” Georgette Che, Master I student of the Faculty of letters and Social Sciences says “we have finished our course work we have started even some anticipated second semester courses. Exams will take place after the 1st cycle have finished. All test and exposés have been conducted. There is enough time to prepare for the exams and time to do more research work.
