ZIMSEC gives candidates reprieve
Candidates who failed to register for Ordinary and Advanced Level November 2020 examinations due to Covid-19 related challenges will get a reprieve after the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) said it will open another window allowing them to register.
The reprieve will also apply to other candidates who failed to pay top-up examination fees which were adjusted by the government when it announced a new structure that had a subsidy of 53 percent.
This was said by Zimsec director, Dr. Lazarus Nembaware while giving oral evidence before Parliament’s portfolio committee on Primary and Secondary Education chaired by Ms. Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga (Proportionate Representative.).
The committee had invited Zimsec to get an update on the preparedness of public examinations which was supposed to start on May 26, 2020, but have since been deferred due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
