ZOMBA-(MaraviPost)-The Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB) on Saturday, March 21, 2020 temporarily called off the the Primary School Leaving Certificate Education (PSLCE) and Malawi School Certificate Education (MSCE) examinations.
In a statement made available to The Maravi Post, the board suspended the 2020 PSLCE and MSCE examinations timetables following the closure of schools due to the threat of coronavirus.
“This follows government’s declaration of state of disaster and subsequent preventive measures put in place with regard to corona virus.
“MANEB will come up with new timetables after the schools reopen,” reads part of the statement.
The development has come in following the order by the state President, Peter Mutharika on Friday on closure of all schools and colleges as one of the measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
The MSCE exams were expected to be held from June 23 to July 16 this year and the PSLCE were supposed to be administered from 6th – 8th May 2020 after a sudden shift from the initial dates of 20th to 22nd May 2020 due to 2020 fresh presidential elections set for 19th May.
MANEB also has appealed to PSLCE candidates to keep their examination Identity cards that they were given safe till the new examination dates are set.
