For a struggling student who simply works his or her way to college with meager or close - to - nothing budget, the "No Permit, No Exam" Policy is simply an unacceptable ultimatum and total defeat, making the entire semester's work vain. So, I can only sympathize with students who oftentimes fail their semester's load because they can't take their final exams.
In a joint press conference, the Commission of Higher Education (CHED), Kabataan Partylist and National Union of Students of the Philippines (NUSP) warned schools to enforce the 2010 memo to disband any policy disallowing students to take their exams without permits.
So, the mandate of CHED to forbid HEI's from enforcing the "No Permit, No Exam" allows millions of students to take their exams provided HEI's have the authority to withhold students' grades, or disallow re - enrollment should financial obligations are still due.
This enforced policy shall be a relief to students and we can only hope that all schools can strictly implement.
