ZIMSEC: O level exams to spill into next year. The examinations commence on 1 December with around 1,2 million candidates have registered to sit for the exams countrywide. Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) board chairperson Professor Eddie Mwenje told our Harare Bureau that Advanced Level examinations will, however, be completed by year-end.

Public examinations for Ordinary Level candidates will spill into January next year, while results for Grade Seven candidates will be released before year-end to allow parents adequate time to secure Form One places for their children.

“Examinations will start on December 1 with Grade Seven candidates being the first to sit for the exams. This will enable their answer scripts to be marked and the results to be published in December so as to allow parents enough time to look for Form One places. Advanced Level candidates are also likely to write and complete their examinations in December. Ordinary Level classes will have their examinations spill into January.”

He said due to the large number of subjects offered at O’Level, it was inevitable that the exams would spill into 2021.

Around 600 000 pupils will sit for Grade Seven examinations, while about 400 000 have registered for the Ordinary Level exams with nearly 200 000 candidates set to sit for the Advanced Level exams. Exam classes are undergoing an intense crash programme to ensure that learners catch up on lost learning time.


Pupils sitting for the Cambridge examinations are already halfway through their exams, which started on October 1 and are ending on November 18.

British Council in Zimbabwe, which is the Cambridge partner, said the examinations have been going on without incident. About 50 000 pupils are sitting for Cambridge examinations at 118 private schools across the country.
