PSLCE Start with a 1.4 % Drop

Benedicto Kondowe

The number of candidates sitting for the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) which began today has dropped to 266,639 from last year’s 270,558, representing a 1.4 percent decrease.

The development according to Education Expert Benedicto Kondowe, is as a result of the spillover effect of covid-19 that saw high dropout among learners.

“I note that there is a drop in the number of students by 3, 919 from the previous examinations. It could also be that some learners feel less preparedness hence might have decided to sit next year,” Kondowe said.


Kondowe, however, thinks that in  view of the foregoing, the education sector in Malawi should continue raising awareness about the importance of education.

Administration of the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) exams have started on a good note, with insignificant challenges.

A random check in examination centres in Blantyre, Lilongwe, Mzuzu and Zomba has revealed that there is tight security.
