Makerere Varsity advised to embrace ICT to avoid fraud

Makerere University has been challenged to embrace ICT to address fraud in student marks.

The advice comes following media reports that at least 418 students illegally altered their marks to get better grades.

Ayivu County Member of Parliament, Bernard Atiku attributes this problem partly to the continued use of the manual system to enter students’ marks.

He further calls on the Uganda National Council for higher Education to come up with stringent measures including banning lecturers and students involved in the forgeries as he explains.
