Scotland: Another exam fiasco looms

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

FRESH fears that the deadline for delivering
this year's exams results may again not be met
emerged yesterday.

The Scottish Executive has been forced to draft
in a team of experts to the Scottish Qualifications
Authority to try to avert a repeat of last year's fiasco, less than a month before the exams start,
and create a new role of exam co-ordinator from
the civil service.

This problem began when they updated their system
in late 1999 to become Y2K compliant
