ZIMSEC Extends Examinations Registration Deadline

ZIMSEC Extends Examinations Registration Deadline

The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) has extended the registration period for November 2022 Grade 7, Ordinary and Advanced Level candidates to 5 August.

ZIMSEC had initially set the registration window between July 22 and 29 but school authorities struggled to register candidates yesterday after the ZIMSEC system reportedly stopped accepting new entries on Thursday night.

In an interview with State media, ZIMSEC spokesperson Nicky Dlamini said the system failure was a security measure.

She added that when the system reopens, payments done in local currency will be pegged at the exchange rate of $488 to US$1 (during the previous window the rate was US$1:$455). Said Dlamini:

As we speak I am sending out communication that we have opened up a new window from the 1st to the 5th of August.

Those who are still to make payments can use that window and this period is for payment and registration and centres must not close now.

For those who will pay in local currency, the rate will be $488 to US$1.

… The system does that. It’s a security measure and when it reopens the new rate will apply.

Grade 7 learners will pay US$10 for all subjects, while O and A Level students are paying US$11 and US$22 for the first seven and three subjects per subject, respectively, following a 55% government subsidy for public, local authority and not-for-profit mission schools.

O and A Level students will pay the full amounts of US$24 and US$48 for each extra subject thereafter.
