Final-year Agriculture students at Dundalk Institute of Technology are set to resit an exam after a test taken last week was “comprised.”
In a statement, Dr. Edel Healy – the Head of the School of Health and Science – said: “On May 20th, Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) became aware that an examination paper sat by final-year students on one programme on May 14 was comprised.”
"As a result of this isolated incident, a decision was made by the School of Health & Science at DkIT to request that all students in the class must re-sit the examination on Friday (May 24th) or at a later date to be decided in August.”
“After careful consideration, this approach was deemed to be the most appropriate and fair course of action for our students, in line with DkIT's Assessments and Standards Policy.”
She said that this will ensure that all successful students may be conferred in November as planned.
