How to log in to your Ministry of Education ‘Student Secure Web’ account
An important thing for all grade 10-12 students to do is to set up and use your Student Secure Web account. This is a service run by the Ministry of Education, not by EBUS. Your SSW account contains:
- The official record of your course credits
- provincial exam marks
- other services, such as designating which Colleges and Universities should receive your transcripts (for grade 12s)
To set up your account, you will need your full legal name, and your PEN (personal education number). You can find your 9-digit PEN on your EBUS Dashboard.
Visit www.bced.gov.bc.ca/exams, and click on the Student Secure Web icon (it says “get your exam results”). Next, use your PEN to create your SSW account, and login.
Have a look around your SSW account. One thing you want to do is review your marks and look for anything incorrect or missing. NOTE that courses you completed since November 2013 may not show yet – your school marks are only sent to your SSW account a few times per year.
If you have any questions about thing you see in your SSW account, please don’t hesitate to contact Chris at EBUS
Grade 12’s applying to post-secondary: PSI choices
To all gr. 12 students applying for post-secondary school (college/university) please be sure to login to your Student Secure Web account and make your PSI choice selection. Get this done by the end of March.
OK, FOR FREE, IN MAY, the Ministry of Education will make your official transcripts and interim marks available to colleges/universities you apply to. And, IN JULY, they will send your official final graduation transcript to your chosen colleges/universities.
This is great, since it automates the process and you don’t have to do the transcript requesting/ordering/mailing work. And it’s FREE….but you have to authorize the Ministry to do it for you.
So, login to your SSW account (the one that has your transcripts and provincial exam results). Click the link to do with Post-Secondary Institution selections (PSI). Choose the schools to which you’ve applied. One thing is they’ve rolled the BC schools all into one item, so if you’re just applying in BC, you can select that one thing (called “All BC PSI’s”, or some such).
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with questions about this!
