On OAU, ETX and WES Going Digital with Transcripts Exchange
Because of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on work and specifically on the processing and the exchange of transcripts between academic institutions and the result-evaluating body—WES, the startup company OAU and some other schools in Nigeria hand their transcripts exchange activities to has gotten an understanding with WES for the acceptance of electronic copies of transcripts instead of the usual hardcopies. Which is why many people whose transcripts were delivered to WES recently have gotten the “Not Accepted” comment on the transcripts part of their WES portal. This is because WES now expects the electronic version of the transcripts and not the paper copies that have been delivered to them. So if you have “Not Accepted” on the OAU transcripts part of your WES portal, there is almost nothing to worry about, you are just to make another request for your transcripts from your school but now making a request for the electronic version and not the paper version to be sent by courier. Hope you understand that?
By the way (I had to bring this in), ETX didn’t just get the electronic transcripts understanding with WES, even when everyone thought WES doesn’t take soft copies of transcripts from anyone, they have always been taking soft copy transcripts from OAU/ETX, because of the understanding everyone thinks WES and ETX are just reaching now which they actually have reached since time immemorial. As much as I know, ETX only returned to sending hard copies of transcripts to WES because their customers wouldn’t let them rest about “WES doesn’t take softcopies”. But now that everyone knows WES takes softcopies from OAU/ETX, this is going to be the way to go. Transcripts delivery is about to get easier, your transcripts wouldn’t have to spend more weeks at sorting rooms in Nigeria and more days on the flight and more weeks at the sorting rooms of the destination country after a very long time of processing the transcripts from the levels of compiling your results at your department to the final levels of furnishing the results into transcripts and getting them authorized and sent, they just get delivered to WES in minutes after that since it’s now sent digitally. So this is a good thing you’d agree with me.
