The University of Namibia (Unam) will issue new dates for year-end exams for subjects whose papers were allegedly leaked recently.

Shahid Shu'aib Dickson, a spokesperson at the university, confirmed on Friday that the impact of rewriting the affected modules on supplementary examinations, starting on 29 November, must also be determined.

According to him, an investigation has already begun in "all seriousness" to try to determine the magnitude of the leak, but it is mostly only students in the relevant department who are affected.

"The current examination timetable remains as it is. The teaching students will continue with the examination as per the timetable from Wednesday (16 November)," he said.

Dickson emphasised that the university maintains and enforces the highest standards and integrity with respect to its examinations, which necessitates the current measures.

The modules that were affected by the leak of papers, namely those from Friday (11 November), Monday (14 November), and Tuesday (15 November), will now have to be written at a later date. However, these dates are not yet known, but according to Dickson, they will still be this year.
