Benghazi, 26 July 2015:
The University of Benghazi . . .[restrict]has announced that exams will be held as of 5 September. The various faculties, it says, will be publish details as to when exactly their exams take place. These will be posted on the university’s website, www.uob.edu.ly.
Displaced students and those currently serving in the Libyan national Army will be able to take their exams early next year but will be notified as to when, the university added.
It further said that the date of exams for medical students was still being looked into.
There have been several announcements about exams and classes restarting at the university ever since it was forced to close in May last year because of the fighting in the city. This latest pronouncement, however, follows one in May in which it said it would decide after Ramadan when classes would recommence.
The main campus at Garyounis has been seriously damaged as a result of being bombarded by the Libyan National Army after it was taken over and used as an operations base by Islamists in the Benghazi Revolutionaries’ Shoura Council. However, although the government has said that it will have to be rebuilt and has even suggested moving to an alternative site, it is not thought to be as badly affected as previously believed.
