However, a technical hitch caused problems for school management nationwide when they failed to upload students' data for transmission to the Ministry of Education via the e-network. Most of the schools were unable to connect to e-link.

The failure, according to some sources at the PC Department, was due to lack in the technical capacity at the ministry and insufficiency of main servers.

Meanwhile, the MoE has disconnected the Internet link from the PCs of most of the employees with the ministry as well as the Dubai Education Zone. The disconnection will last till June 16, sources added.
