Education ministry irks nation on selection list


Despite releasing this year’s standard eight and form two examinations results, the ministry of education failed to release selection list of form ones, prompting parents to be running up and down searching for the results.

The ministry was blamed for failing to release the results in time and as that was not enough, it just released the list of those who passed last Wednesday.

To make matters worse, form one and form three students have been ordered to report to their respective schools next Monday, without giving parents time to prepare.

Out of 255,087 candidates who sat for this year’s Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education Examinations, 197,222 candidates have qualified for the award of the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education.

“This represents a 77.32% pass rate. Out of 197,222 internal candidates who passed the examinations, 69,587 candidates have been selected to various public secondary schools, representing a 35.28% selection rate,” reads a statement from the ministry signed by Charles Msosa, the ministry’s secretary.

Out of 133,113 candidates who sat for this year’s Junior Certificate of Education Examinations, 103,447 candidates have qualified for the award of the Junior Certificate of Education. This represents a 77.71% pass rate.

All candidates are informed that their results are available in all Education Division Offices, District Education Offices and in all Public and Grant-Aided Secondary Schools.

“All queries about the JCE results must be channelled to MANEB through the Head Teachers at schools where candidates wrote their examinations. MANEB will not entertain any query about the results made directly to the Board by candidates or any other individual. All officially channelled queries should reach MANEB by 14th October, 2016. After this date, no further queries will be entertained,” adds the statement.

All students who have been selected to start Form 1 are requested to report to schools they have been selected to by 11th September, 2016 for boarding scholars, and 12th September, 2016 for all day scholars. Similarly all candidates who have passed their JCE must report to their respective schools on 11th September, 2016 for boarding scholars and 12th September, 2016 for day scholars.
