Indeed, unless the results of the exams of the fifth semester are published, the students of the last semester cannot complete their three-year course. If some students have failed in a subject of the fifth semester exams, they can sit for and pass the additional / special exams which will take place shortly, as well as the final (sixth) semester exams.

The university will announce the results of other odd semester exams (first and third) in due course as there is no rush as these students will continue their studies, he said.
