Imagine a situation where students and parents can log on to their computer or tablet from home and select which GCSE or A-level subjects the student wishes to study. A situation where there is no mountain of paperwork of option choices for teachers to sift through. And where timetablers are told automatically how many classes of GSCE French they need to accommodate or how many students have selected history at A-level.
With the launch of SIMS Options from Capita SIMS (stand B190) at Bett, all this is possible.
SIMS Options enables students and parents to access information on the subjects from home and make their selection online. Their choices are fed straight back to the SIMS school’s management information system for processing.
Schools will also be able to include applicant students from other schools in the options process which is key for schools that take applicants from neighbouring schools.
More importantly, SIMS Options saves staff countless hours collating and sorting every individual options submission.
