BC transcript issue 'resolved,' won't affect school admissions: Minister

August 2, 2019

The Government of British Columbia has reported that the issue affecting Grade 12 transcripts has been resolved and that postsecondary admissions should not be affected. Education Minister Rob Fleming stated that ministry staff worked “around the clock” to identify and fix the errors discovered on student transcripts. “After the discovery, the ministry contacted all post-secondary institutions in Canada and NCAA institutions in the U.S. to ensure that no student applications for the fall would be affected,” stated Fleming. “Post-secondary institutions have stated they will ensure the error in marks reporting won’t negatively impact any incoming students.” An investigation found that human error caused the mistakes.
