Govt: November ZIMSEC exams to go ahead as planned. President Mnangagwa, yesterday, while addressing the nation said the primary and secondary final year students were supposed to sit for their final examinations in November and December as planned, despite the fact that learners were last in school on 24 March 2020, ZimLive reports.
During his address, President Mnangagwa said: The developed and approved guidelines that were put in place for the June 2020 examinations will be used for the holding of the final examinations in November/December.
The announcement is likely to be met with stiff hostility from parents and teachers as it places a lot of students at a disadvantage since they may be inadequately prepared to take their final examinations.
