I could not complete my mid-semester exam due to connectivity issues. My electricity went and I had no Internet access to do my exam. I am asking if there is any way I could be assisted to complete my exam?
Whilst we are sorry to hear of the challenges experienced whilst doing your examinations we kindly ask that you inform your lecturers as soon as possible. It would be up to them to determine the next course of action as we are not in a position to offer a resit.
