SRC & CHC Election Update - No. 2
Nomination of candidates for the SRC and CHC have been received from various student organisations and independents. The election staff are verifying these nominations according to the rules below:
5.4 Nomination of Candidates
5.4.1. Candidates (nominees) for the election and students who nominate (nominators) candidates must be registered students.
5.4.2. As academic excellence is the primary goal of the UWC academic project, the University recognises that academic performance is a necessary practice for purposes of student leadership and governance.
5.4.3. All candidates must comply with the following criteria:
220.127.116.11. * Be a registered student at the time of the election
18.104.22.168. * They must have passed 60% of the modules for which they were registered in the most recent June examination and have been promoted to the next study level from the previous year (not enrolment level of EMS faculty).
b. If a student did not qualify to write the exam in a module because of his/her low Continuous Evaluation mark, that module/s will still count as a June exam module.
c. Using a % rather than a number will cause difficulties in calculation. Should the number AFTER the decimal point be > or = 5, the number then takes on the higher value, e.g., 5,7 = 6; 5,5 = 6; 5,4 = 5.
d. The following figures will be applied:
|Number of Modules||Ratio |
|Number of modules for June |
exam to pass
22.214.171.124. * Not have been previously found guilty and convicted of a criminal offence in a court of law.
126.96.36.199. * Not have been previously found guilty and convicted of an offense by the University Student Discipline Court.
The Provisional list of Candidates will be published by Thursday, 19 September, 14h00. Students can then lodge objections to any nominated candidate by completing the required form obtainable from the EMB election office, Student Centre, next to ABSA Autobank.
