The Rwanda National Examinations Council (RNEC) has earmarked Frw50 million for a three-year project proposal for an ‘Online Publication Exams Results.’
In this system, examination results will be released via emails or posted on RNEC’s Web site where schools would easily receive their students’ results on time. In an interview, RNEC Executive Secretary John Rutayisire said the system would solve transport problems for some school directors who used to travel long distances to pick results at the council headquarters. “Some school directors have been coming from Gisenyi, Cyangugu and many other farthest places in the country to take their students’ results. We want to make it easier for them through this ICT System.” Rutayisire said.
He added that the system would also help RNEC work faster.
When asked whether Frw50m would be enough to run the project, Rutayisire ( above ) said the budget was drawn under their little capacity but needs a lot of resources.
“It is not some thing we can just plan and inaugurate. We still need more resources from different sectors; this project will need a lot of consultants and infrastructure,” he explained Formed in 1997, RNEC has been handling primary and secondary secondary examinations which approve students’ certificates to join higher education
