O’ Level candidates will pay ZWL$1 620.00 and the Government will pay ZWL$1 980 giving a total of ZWL$3 600.

A’ Level candidates will pay ZWL$3 240.00 and the Government will pay ZWL$3 960.00 giving a total of ZWL$7 200. See the table below:

Examination LevelPortion paid by Candidate ZWL$Portion paid by Government ZWL$Total Fees in ZWL$
Grade 7$4 388.00$5 362.00$9 750.00
O Level$1 620.00$1 980$3 600
A Level$3 240.00$3 960.00$7 200

Fees structure explained

The reason why Grade 7 examination fees look higher than Ordinary and Advanced Level fees is that they are the total fees.

This means that a Grade 7 pupil in a public government-owned school will pay ZWL$4 388.00 in total and not per subject.

For Advanced Level and Ordinary Level candidates, the fees are per subject. For example, an O’ Level candidate will pay ZWL$1 620.00 per subject. Therefore, if one is sitting for 5 subjects, they will pay ZWL$8 100.00.

The government’s contribution is limited to 7 subjects. If a candidate writes more than 7 subjects, they will start paying the full fee for the 8th subject.

For example, if you are writing 9 subjects you will pay a total of $18 540.00 split as follows:

  • ZWL$11 340.00 per subject for the 7 subjects at ZWL$1 620.00 per subject
  • ZWL$7 200.00 for the additional two subjects at ZWL$3 600.00 per subject.

If a candidate is doing practical subjects, they will pay double the fees including a practical fee. So a candidate will pay ZWL$3 240.00 instead of the usual ZWL$1 620.00.

If a candidate attends a private school they will have to pay the full fees because the government will not contribute anything.

This means the candidate will pay ZWL$3 600.00 per subject instead of ZWL$1 620.00 even if they are writing less than 7 subjects.

  1. If the government is saying we must pay 4388.00 for the examination fee for grade seven why are schools requiring the money in USD whilst we are paying 29 USD
