The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education has not cancelled O’ and A’ Level examinations for both June and November 2020 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
This was said by Permanent Secretary in the Ministry Tumisang Thabela who added that parents can use online platforms to submit registration data and send proof of payment. She said:
We urge parents to continue paying their children’s examination fees if they have not yet done so. The Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council has opened up many channels through which parents can pay this time around so they should use them.
Parents can use online platforms for the submission of registration data and proof of payment and send to email@example.com.
Thabela’s remarks follow social media claims that ZIMSEC has cancelled this year’s public exams after the school term was cut short by the COVI-19 outbreak.
Schools were closed before the scheduled dates and the government has not yet announced dates for the commencement of the second term.
