Govt Orders Schools To Reimburse Centre Fees

Govt Orders Schools To Reimburse Centre Fees

The Government has ordered schools that have charged formal candidates centre fees for Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) November examinations to reverse the transactions.

This follows reports that some school heads were demanding between US$10 and US$25 as centre fees for formal examination candidates enrolled in their schools

Some schools reportedly barred prospective ZIMSEC candidates from paying registration fees until they had paid the centre fees.

Previously, centre fees were paid by external candidates while formal learners were exempted from paying that fee.

Director of Communications and Advocacy in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Taungana Ndoro said:

We are not aware of that but we will be investigating the matter.

Students in formal school are not to be charged that fee. It is illegal for schools to do that.

Those that are doing so should stop while those that have done so already should reimburse the parents.

Registration commenced on Friday with the fees in US dollar terms set at US$10 per subject for Grade 7, while it is US$11 per subject for O-level and A-level is at US$22 per subject.

ZIMSEC announced that schools must use an exchange rate of ZWL$454.7 to US$1 when collecting the fees.

Meanwhile, registration will close on Friday.

It is testimony that the cabal that is steering this ship is clueless, incompetent and illiterate especially the two chaps at the helm. All they wanted was to have a feel of power but they don't have what it takes. Education is supposed to be the most affordable of all as it secures the future of a nation. This is all lost on these people who, when they speak or act it is apparent both have no education. The other takes himself to be a lawyer but no evidence exist of study, while the other had thesis for the so called doctorate written for him according to Jonathan Moyo. It also means undergraduate and postgraduate was done for him. What do you expect from such people except incompetence. Vana Mamvura vari kutyaira bhazi🤣🤣🤣
