The NTA College, Jos, has expelled seven students and rusticated three others for examination malpractice, its Rector, Dr. Ayo Fasan, has said.
Fasan told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos on Wednesday that the college was investigating another student allegedly caught cheating in the same examination.
The students were caught during the just concluded second semester examination conducted by the college.
He said that the 10 students, whose cases had been settled, were undergoing diploma programmes, while the student being investigated was pursuing a degree course.
“The seven that were expelled were caught with incriminating materials, while the three that were suspended had no direct physical evidence on them.’’
The rector listed the expelled students as Auta Yossi, Gyang Hope, Sunday Chungwom, Priscialla Kon, Samuel Nanman and Yerima Nanchin, all of TV Journalism Department, while Babasola Adediran is of the TV Production Department.
“Expelling them was a difficult decision to take, but I gladly took it to show them that the college does not condone such kind of behaviour.
Journalism Students Association said that the expulsion would make other students to study hard to pass their examinations on merit.
