The government has resolved that there will be no ZIMSEC June examinations this year. The announcement was made at a press briefing after the cabinet met. Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa made the announcement.

This suspension will allow for timely focus on the November 2021 examination preparations

Mrs Monica Mutsvangwa on the issue

This is not really surprising as rumors on the issue had been doing rounds for a while. It kind of makes sense too. If you consider the fact that students haven’t had normal learning for what amounts to two years now. Then there is also the fact that November 2020 examinations results are still pending. Usually June candidates are partly made up of students who feel like they are ready to write and want to write early and those who want to suppliment after failing some of their examinations the previous year.

None of these have any reason to write. Last year the government went ahead with June examinations after Cambridge suspended theirs.
