June 2019 National Examinations
The Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council wishes to inform the nation that the June 2019 Ordinary and Advanced Level Examination sessions are scheduled to begin on 3 June.
The examinations will run until 26 June 2019. In that regard, we would like all our valued and trusted stakeholders to be informed on the issues that are related to these examinations.
All candidates must ensure that they attend examination sessions on time. The starting times of the morning and afternoon sessions are clearly stated on the candidates’ examination entry statements.
ZIMSEC urges all stakeholders to ensure that examinations are run according to the set regulations. Where these are breached, stakeholders should report immediately so that action is taken by ZIMSEC.
Stakeholders have the ability to ensure that examination malpractice is stopped. We wish to let the nation aware of some who change dates on old examination question papers and sell these as current question papers on the Whatsapp platform. Guard yourself against these people.
The ZIMSEC regulations are clear that any candidate found guilty of breaching examination regulations will have their results either withheld, pending an investigation or nullification.
ZIMSEC encourages all stakeholders and members of society to report any such incidents of examination malpractice, unethical business practices and corruption.
