Zimbabwe Examinations Council (Zimsec) Printing Exam Papers In The United Kingdom

In a bid to avoid leakages it has been revealed that the Zimbabwe Examinations Council (Zimsec) is printing part of the November public examination papers in the United Kingdom, despite having its own printing facility in Norton and also contracting Fidelity printers to print O’ and A’ Level exam papers.

Eddie Mwenje, the examination body’s board chairperson, although not confirming that some of this year’s examination papers were being printed in the UK, said it was not the first time that Zimsec was outsourcing.

Said Mwenje:

We are outsourcing and we have always been outsourcing and this is not the first time.

Zimsec examines quite a number of students and there is Grade 7, Form 4 and A’ Level and that is quite a lot.The printing facility that we are setting up in Norton is near completion and, therefore, this is the reason why we could not print all stuff here.

We are printing some of the stuff with our other machines, but we couldn’t print everything and that is why we have to do outsourcing externally as well.
