ZIMSEC Wins Appeal Against Court Order Blocking A Re-Write Of 2017 O’Level English Paper 2

The Zimbabwe School Examination Council (ZIMSEC) has won an appeal against a High Court order that blocked the council from ordering a re-write of the 2017 English Paper 2.

The council had ordered candidates to re-write the paper which had leaked resulting in the widespread cheating by candidates.

The verdict is, however, two years late making it impossible for the council to order a re-write now but it has a bearing on future examinations.

Zimsec is allowed under Section 34(1) of the Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council Act to annul the results of any examination which is flawed by a specified irregularity, while the provisions of the Interpretation Act extends that power to address the consequences and exigencies of any such nullification.

The alleged leaks have compromised the quality of education in the country and it is also argued that they have contributed to the negative perception others have on local learning institutions.

  1. NEITHER HERE NOR THERE FOR ZIMSEC. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT ZIMSEC MUST HAVE ENOUGH SECURITY FOR EXAMINATION. HAVING PAPERS IN THE STREET IS A TEMPTATION ANY CANDIDATE IS UNLIKELY TO BE ABLE TO RESIST. THAT COURT SHOULD NATURALLY PUT THE BURDEN ON ZIMSEC IN THIS MATTER, SURELY. SIMPLE LOGIC HAS THAT….!!
