Notwithstanding previous confirmation of an ward of a degree as in confirmation of award of degree/diploma and presentation of certificate, the Academic Board may, at any time, cancel an award, even with retrospective effect, if it becomes known that:

  1. a candidate had entered the university with false qualifications, or
  2. a candidate had impersonated someone else, or
  3. a candidate had been guilty of an examination malpractice, or
  4. there are other reasons that would have led to the withholding of confirmation of the award in the first place.

In any such event, the decision of the Academic Board shall be published on the University Notice Board and the candidate notified. Such cancellation and the reasons for it shall be entered on the candidate’s transcript
