It’s not only birth certificates, passports or TIN letters are important and valuable documents that one should keep safe at all times.
Safe keeping of “Exam Result Transcripts” (external exams) is also very important as this is more valuable than any other documents in our lives because this document (exam results transcript) come a day will be the decider of one’s future.
Parents, teachers, schools and especially the students, if we all can treat exams (either internal or external) with very high importance and priority then we also should treat the safe keeping of external exam result transcripts with high or even higher importance and priority.
It’s often seen that students forget to collect their results from the school after exams and are least bothered about it till the very day they are scheduled to attend a job interview. This would be the day they start calling the schools, teachers, ministry and exams office.
A lesson well learned for some who came for the interview during the Recruitments of Fiji Police Force at Lautoka, Monday, April 25. The majority of the turnout for the interview didn’t have their exam result transcripts and had to taste the last minute rush at the education office and exams office for their transcripts. However, this last minute rush could have been easily avoided if only they had kept their result transcripts safely.
Not forgetting to thank the Lautoka Education Office and especially the Examinations Office for facilitating the last minute requests and assisting the needy ones who may have awakened the very last minute. I would like to make a humble request to parents at large to ensure that their child’s result transcripts are safely kept throughout and to the Schools if they can keep any uncollected results up to five years or more.
Also all the best to those who came for the selection into the Fiji Police Force.
