The Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council (ZIMSEC) said that the 2021 Grade 7 results are available but a few processes need to be done before they are released.
On Thursday, the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, Evelyn Ndlovu, said the results will be announced today (Friday).
However, also speaking yesterday to State media, ZIMSEC spokesperson Nicky Dhlamini said Grade 7 results will be out “soon”. She said:
The results are there but there are just some final processes that need to be done before we release them. They will be out soon.
Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education spokesperson Taungana Ndoro said Ndlovu would give an update on the way forward for this year’s Form One classes this Friday at 2 PM.
While the majority of school pupils commence lessons on Monday, Form One classes will only come to school after Grade 7 results are released.
The first term starts on Monday, 7 February, and ends on 7 April. The term has 45 school days.
The second term will begin on 3 May and runs for 69 days until 4 August, while the third term will have 71 school days from 5 September to 8 December.
