The National University of Science and Technology (NUST) has indefinitely postponed examinations that were scheduled to run from the 5th to the 9th of this month.
In a notice to students Thursday, NUST Acting Deputy Registrar Leon Hadebe said the postponement of the examinations has been necessitated by the new lockdown measures imposed to control the spread of the coronavirus. Said Hadebe:
Please be advised that Examinations that were scheduled to run from the 5th to the 9th of July, 2021 have been postponed to a date to be advised.
This has been necessitated by the recent lockdown regulations that were imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19. Any inconvenience caused is regretted.
On Tuesday President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced that the country is reverting to Level 4 lockdown following a sharp rise in new coronavirus infections.
President Mnangagwa said the measures will be in place for two weeks and then be reviewed thereafter.
Among other things, businesses will open from 0800hrs to 1530hrs in compliance with the general curfew running from 1830hrs to 0600hrs.
