This project, Automated Students' Results Management Information System (SRMIS) was carried out to automate the manual processes of compiling Students Examination Results. It was necessitated because of some setbacks in manual result processing. The system was designed to automatically take raw scores from excel files and store them in a database. It used past processed results to help the next course registration prior to results upload. Its result processing features includes the computation

Every session, it keeps track of student's status information as recorded in the student files, specifying if a student is legitimate. The database also holds the lists of admitted students each year and records their school fees payment status. The software engineering was done with the Incremental model using an object-oriented programming approach. Raw data input to the SRMIS is one of the most cumbersome tasks. A computerized input using file upload saves lecturers a lot of effort and time of data entry. This system uses the student's course registration data to match the uploaded results. The essence is to design an efficient computerized system that will replace manual result processing which is prone to lot of paper work and errors. This reduces the tedious tasks involved, and enhances students' performance through timely publication of results.
