Below the mark

Dr Norris Bekoe highlighted that there are students who pay little to no attention to their academics, which is the main reason why they are in school.

As a result, they obtain Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA), which is below the passing mark. When that happens, they are forced to reply for new admission and start all over again sometimes, without their parents’ knowledge, reported.
