Updated News: Zimsec ‘O’ Levels To Re-Write English Paper 2 Exam ... Rest Of Results Held

Candidates who sat for the November 2017 Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (ZIMSEC)’s Ordinary Level English Paper 2 Examination are set to re-write the paper on Friday next week following cheating that took place last year when the examination was administered.

Speaking during a press conference in Harare Thursday afternoon, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima said the ministry regretted the inconvenience caused but the move was worthwhile as it would preserve the integrity of the examinations system.

Meanwhile, the release of the 2017 Ordinary Level results have been put on hold until the English Language Paper 2 has been taken, marked and integrated with the rest of the examination.

According to ZIMSEC, over 260 000 candidates sat for the examination. Zimsec director Mr Esau Nhandara said the board would ensure that results are released in the shortest time possible.
