Despite the Covid 19 challenges a number of students were able to write their ZIMSEC examinations in June. The examinations started late and there were even some rumours that non-teaching staff members were roped in to invigilate after fearful teachers abandoned their posts as they did not have protective equipment. Now the questions is when are results coming out. Well, below we attempt to answer this and other questions.
The government has announced that examiners only started marking the papers during the week of 21 September 2020. They have also said that results are expected soon but they did not want to commit to a specific date. Based on the fact that fewer than usual students wrote the June exams we can only speculate that results can be expected early to mid October.
The results are not yet as outlined above marking has just begun. We will, however, update this article once the results do come out.
First, you need to make sure that results are now out and available on the portal. If results are not yet out then you will not be able to log in. Also, note that the examinations board has caved in to pressure from schools and they now have the power to restrict what you can see.
