Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education examinations start on a positive note


Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) has described the first day of Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education examinations as a success.

According to Maneb, over 270,000 students are siting for the examinations across the country.

Maneb Public Relations Officer, Simeon Maganga, said in an interview the students sat their examinations in all the designated centres without any incidents.


“We registered about 271, 000 students this year and we hope that all of them have turned up. Last year, about 15, 000 students did not turn up which was a sad development but we hope that all the students will sit for the examinations this year,” he said.

Maganga said the board can detect foul play at any stage of the examinations even after the examinations are administered.

He said although cheats are getting sophisticated, Maneb is ready to root out all acts of cheating in national examinations.


He assured the nation of tight security in all examination centres but asked the general public to alert them of any foul play.

“We did our part. The cheaters are getting sophisticated but we have also improved our ways of ensuring safety of the examinations. However, we rely on the general public to tip us when they suspect any foul play,” he said.

The examinations are expected to end Friday.
