FORMS 3 and 5 school results will be made available Monday next week, while results for form 6 will be ready on Wednesday.
Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development (MEHRD) revealed this yesterday as parents look forward to the results this year.
A statement the ministry issued said Minister Lanelle Tanangada will sign to release forms 3 and 5 results on Monday.
She’ll do the same for form 6 results on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the ministry said its 2018 decision that it would provide the first transcript printing free of charge to students still stands.
However, it added, the cohort of students that took the National Examinations in 2020 and who wish to get a copy of their transcripts will need to visit their Education Authority offices.
“We are in communication with Provincial Education Authority Offices to provide alternative office location in Honiara, for them to use to distribute official student examination transcripts,” the statement said.
Dates for printing and distribution for the national examination transcripts are as follows:
- Tuesday, January 19, 2021 – Printing of official transcripts starts at MEHRD, prioritising Honiara Schools.
- Thursday, January 21, 2021 – Printed official transcripts can be collected at the Honiara Schools and Honiara-located Education Authority Offices. School Principals can access electronic copies of their respective school results for Year 10 (Form 4), Year 12 (Form 6) and Year 13 (Form 7) Placement School Results from their respective Education Authorities.
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education Dr Franco Rodie has advised that media outlets can collect the endorsed 2020 National Examination/Placement Results from the Manager of the National Examination and Assessment Division (NEAD) if they wish to publish the results in their papers.
“For this the media needs consent or permission from the Manager of NEAD. MEHRD will also publish the same results on its website: www.mehrd.gov.sb”.
As part of the National Examination cycle, a reconsideration period (of one month) is effective from the date of endorsement of form 3, form 5 and form 6 final results and the 2020 National Examination candidates can request MEHRD through NEAD to reconsider their final examination grades.
