For this purpose, teachers are able to log into the system and export student data easily.
For teachers, particularly LINUS teachers who want to import student data, the server for the NKRA LINUS portal often experiences high load causing problems to occur. Teachers are advised to import student data at non peak hours or to do the data import process in stages.
Verification of “I’m not a Robot” when logging into Student Database Application
The security issue previously encountered in the Student Database Application system (the I am not a Robot issue) has been resolved. Teachers only need to tick the box provided once and do not need to undergo the screening test again as previously required.
The purpose of this verification is to enhance the system’s security level from unauthorised use, such as the use of robots, User Agents and others.
