The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has provisional plans to delay June examinations by four weeks pending the announcement of schools opening dates by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
In a circular dated 8 May 2020, ZIMSEC director Lazarus Nembaware wrote to heads of examination centres, candidates, parents and stakeholders that the timetable had been moved by four weeks as a precautionary measure.
Nembaware said the revised examination dates will be issued out as soon as confirmation of the reopening of schools is announced.
During the course of the week, ZIMSEC dispatched the table of numbers and entry listings for all June 2020 candidates to all examination centres in preparation for the examinations.
The circular further reads that heads of examination centres should advise all registered candidates to continue preparing for the writing of the examinations.
