The Ministry of Education will apologize to students and compensate any students who were financially harmed by the issuance of incorrect provincial exam results in 2019 as a result of a B.C. Ombudsperson investigation.
In a report released today, Course Correction: The Ministry of Education 2019 Provincial Exam Errors, the Ombudsperson finds the ministry’s communication with students and their families was misleading, and in some cases inaccurate. The ministry posted more than 18,000 incorrect exam scores roughly half of which were higher than they should have been with the other half lower than they should have been.
