A BACKLOG in the issuing of results at the Esayidi TVET College, Enyenyezi Campus, has been delaying students’ progress with some battling to find work or progress to the next level of their studies.

Electrical engineering student Sfundo Khumalo is just one of many students who have been waiting for weeks for the results from the last trimester so as to continue with the now-ending new trimester’s work so that he can eventually obtain his diploma.

Without the results, Khumalo cannot continue to study or go to another class as his results are not published.

Fortunately for Khumalo his tutor, Carla Ferrari, is financing an internship at an electrician in Margate,so at least he can earn some money and work experience while he waits however the issue has inconvenienced many students who are not as lucky as Khumalo.

College principal Johnny Rajoo provided some explanation to the issue.

“In respect of the results for the Nated Electrical Engineering (Trimester 1 – 2018) course, when the results were officially released two weeks ago by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), our Engineering Management found that ,upon analysing the results, 90% of the candidates were recorded as absent (code 999/7) even though we had register proof that they had written the exams.”

He said the college then immediately contacted the College Exams Officer and the Exams Directorate of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) to notify them about the problem.

“The DHET found that there was a technical error in the term mark file (data file) so all the Term Marks were requested again as they had to be loaded manually by DHET before the results could be released. We re-submitted all the term mark sheets to be uploaded manually by DHET officials,” said Rajoo.

He also confirmed that the results were finally released to the College on May 30 and the process of registering students for the new trimester has commenced.
