  • Honourable chancellor,

    My classmates and myself have made a request for extension of dissertation because being part-time students we have to submit our dissertation on the same date as full time students which we think is unfair. We have therefore make a humble request with the V.C for extension for submission of project. This will alleviate our burden because all of us have work responsibilities and some of us have to work even on Sundays and Public Holidays.
    Respecfully submitted for your kind consideration and action.

    from student of Bsc in Food Hygiene and Environmental Health, Faculty of Agriculture
