Makerere University has unveiled a new move aimed at closing in on lecturers who can’t afford to keep their zips up.

The Ivory Tower finally launched the centralized marking policy where all lecturers will be required to mark student’s examination papers in their respective colleges.

A press release issued by the university academics read: “All lecturers are required to mark scripts from one central place and leave the scripts there.”

It continued: “Unlike the case before where scripts where taken home by lecturers, this time round it will be mandatory for every lecturer to commit quality time from 8am to 6pm in one centralized facility marking student’s paper.”

According to Makerere University vice chancellor professor Barnabas Nawangwe, this will help reduce or eliminate incidences of loss of scripts, loss of marks, delayed release of results and allegations of sex for marks.
