The FINAL June 2013 Examination timetable has been released
Please check this site regularly as updates are being made daily.
Readers might like to note - and reflect on - the following statistics before they are tempted to
complain about "bad timetables".
All examinations have had to be scheduled into only 15 days of 2 sessions each day.
There are just under 5 000 undergraduate students who will be writing examinations in June.
Altogether there will be something like 22 000 examination papers written.
Undergraduates have been registered for some 2850 different curricula (combinations of subjects).
Some 2400 of these curricula are "unique", meaning that only one student is registered for that particular curriculum.
Only 8 curricula are taken by more than 50 students each (for example, the
complete standard BCom 1 curriculum (178), and the complete standard BPharm 1 curriculum (163)).
In short, Rhodes University takes an extremely liberal view in allowing
a wide choice of curricula. That we can get a clash-free timetable at all is
something of a miracle. Inevitably there must be a number of students whose
examinations are closer together than they might have hoped.
