In midst of civil war, some university examinations resume

Several faculties at the University of Khartoum have resumed student exams starting on Saturday 12 August, reports Dabanga. Higher education in war-torn Sudan is facing pressing challenges as some campuses have been plundered, and others are reportedly being used by the army as military barracks.

On Saturday, exams for the faculties of engineering, economics and social studies, and arts at the University of Khartoum resumed at designated centres in Atbara in River Nile state, Wad Madani in El Gezira, El Gedaref, and the Sudanese Cultural Centre in Cairo, Egypt.

Ali Abdelrahman, secretary of scientific affairs at the University of Khartoum, stated that exams will continue uninterrupted until September. He also mentioned that the university administration will address the circumstances of students who were unable to sit for the exams “at a later time”.
