Zimsec Speaks: No Examination Resit, Leaks in 2018

Harare - There are no candidates rewriting November examinations, according to the Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council (Zimsec), calling the news fake. 

The board has dismissed ongoing social media rumors claiming that there would be a re-sit for three examination papers that reportedly leaked in the just ended November examinations.

A fake memo circulating on social media allegedly signed by the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Professor Paul Mavima claimed that there would be a re-sit for Mathematics, English and Shona paper two.

Speaking to the chronicle, Zimsec public relations officer, Nicky Dlamini, dismissed the claims saying there was no reported leakage of any paper in the just ended examinations.
No Rewrite says Government 

“No O-Level or A-Level paper that has been put on that letter leaked, therefore we don’t associate ourselves with that statement or letter. We will be announcing our results properly in due course.

Those who were involved in malpractices will be apprehended but there is no such thing as a re-sit,” said Dlamini. According to the fake memo, candidates were to resit the examinations between Monday and Thursday.

In 2017, students were forced to resit English Paper II.

“The English Language Paper II examination will start at 10am on the same day. Zimsec will take custody of all candidate scripts by 2.30pm on the same day. 

“All 26 546 candidates registered at 181 boarding schools are assured that these centres have been engaged to enable single overnight accommodation and associated meals for this limited window,” he said. - Online Sources
