So from time to time the guys in the education sectors implement some genius measures to make life for parents and students much easier. Yesterday the O’Level results were announced and Zimsec also announced that the results will be available online which is a big departure from the way they have done it before.
One thing that is a bit confusing is the fact that students will still have to go and collect the result slips. Maybe this is a protective measure meant to ensure the results aren’t tampered with by students as the result slips given out at schools usually have some watermark to prove their authenticity. The fact that students still have to go collect the slips does make it feel a bit redundant but this is still something welcome.
Will it work better than eMAP?
Hopefully, the system they are using for this isn’t as broken as the one being used to apply for form one places at boarding schools; eMap. Getting anything done on that platform is quite difficult and hopefully the portal for getting results is much more easy to use and much faster.
