Finally, ZIMSEC O level results now accessible online on ZIMSEC online portal

You may have been wondering as I was how ZIMSEC could be so slow to adopt online technology in this digital age. Late last year year, I wrote an article examining possibilities of ZIMSEC to adopt online technologies in various stated functions that other examination boards are doing great. Well, the good news is ZIMSEC O level results are now accessible online on their ZIMSEC online portal. While announcing the release of ZIMSEC o level results yesterday, ZIMSEC also announced that the results will be accessible online.

I would like to comment ZIMSEC for the digital move, because I really feel that this was long overdue. Seems ZIMSEC is now getting the sence. Just this year they also adopted an online system called EMAP which allowed grade seven students going for form 1 to apply for their form one palces online. It worked well for some, while for others it flopped.

ZIMSEC should now work towards putting in place, not just an online results checking system, but a fully fledged portal which comprise of Teacher portal and Student portal, to fully support the teacher and students with updates, guides and resources. Examination boards like Cambridge does this very well. ZIMSEC should freely avail past examniation papers to help candidates and teachers.

To round this off, I am not so sure how the online result checking system works so far. My hope is that it works better than the EMAP which flopped for others and lacked other necessary functionalities. One had to aid the application by calling the prospective schools, to verify acceptancy. One downside I already know though is that, while one can check results online, schools still demand the printed results slip. There should be no need for this in the future.
