ZIMSEC In November Exams Climb Down

The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has said it will open the window for Ordinary and Advanced Level students who failed to register for November 2020 due to Covid-19 related challenges.

The extension of the registration deadline will also apply to other candidates who failed to pay top-up examination fees which were adjusted by Government when it announced a new structure which had a subsidy of 53 per cent.

This was revealed by ZIMSEC director, Lazarus Nembaware while giving oral evidence before Parliament’s portfolio committee on Primary and Secondary Education on Monday.

The Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga-chaired committee had invited Zimsec to get an update on the preparedness of public examinations which were supposed to start on May 26 2020.

ZIMSEC has since postponed the June exams as the country is under an indefinite lockdown imposed by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus.
