Staff and students are encouraged to wear masks for all activities where physical distance cannot be maintained.

Students and staff must scan QR codes or manually in buildings.
Staff and students should keep a distance of 2 meters in public places and 1 meter in the workplace or in private teaching.
Due to the disruption, Macy’s teaching teams have reduced the number of exams as much as possible.
“Many of the studies have been redesigned as assignments or moved to class tests,” said McGongle Daily.
“However, there are still some reviews that require arrangements like exams and they will be done online.”
Most courses have a minimum grade and suspension of essential diagnostic items.
“Any assessment will not be mandatory unless it is specifically required by a professional body and in any assessment students will not be required to obtain a minimum score to obtain a passing grade in the course. “
