All Grade 12 exam results from June are being reviewed by the B.C. Ministry of Education following a system error.
“There was an anomaly in the tabulation of the Grade 12 June exam results and a team of ministry staff are actively working to identify and resolve the issue,” the ministry confirmed Tuesday in a statement.
The ministry said each exam result from last month is being reviewed to “to ensure student grades are accurately reflected on their transcripts.” All B.C. secondary schools have been notified about the problem.
Since those grades are sent to post-secondary institutions, the ministry has contacted all universities and colleges in the province to ensure no student applications are impacted.
“We are also actively contacting Canadian post-secondary institutions and will work with outside post-secondary institutions as needed,” the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry said they are still determining how many students were impacted and provincial scholarships will not be affected by the issue, as the scholarships are not given out until September.
“We have also alerted other Canadian post-secondary institutions and US schools that provide NCAA scholarships to ensure they are aware and students are not impacted,” the ministry said.
The Sooke School District has sent a brief statement regarding the news.
“We are going to work with the ministry to rectify the exam results and we are waiting for further direction,” the district said.
