The Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) has said it will release Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examination results by the end of September this year.
Maneb Executive Director, Gerald Chiunda, said this on the sidelines of the 2019 MSCE awards meeting held at the board’s headquarters in Zomba.
“This time around, we are expected to have the results of MSCE examinations ready by the end of September. We are not sure of the actual date because the process involves a number of steps,” Chiunda said.
He added that this year’s examinations’ marking process had been smooth.
“The examination process this year has been successful because we did not register any cases of leakage. We have also paid all officers who helped us in all the examination processes,” Chiunda said.
The number of students that sat examinations was 98,332 this year, down from 209,000 last year.
The meeting was graced by officials from examinations bodies in Kenya, Lesotho, Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa.
Nkoloyakhe Mpanza from South Africa said it was important that African nations should be brainstorming on how to manage examinations.
