A slew of incorrect grades sent home to students has many Grade 12s panicking over university applications.
The flaw affected the grades and final exam marks of many seniors, school districts around the province said.
“Langley School District Secondary Schools have been made aware of potential incorrect English Language Arts 12 Provincial Exam results on transcripts,” the district posted online. “As a result, the Ministry is contacting post-secondary institutions and re-checking each student’s marks to ensure accuracy. Once secondary schools receive more information, schools will update students via email and/or will make information available on the school websites.”
