Valu­able doc­u­ment

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.
