According to a statement from Ministry of Education, Science and Technology which Nyasa Times has a copy, out of 136,296 candidates who wrote the exams in atleast six subjects including English, 75,296
candidates have passed, representing a 55.2% pass rate.

Out of 61,582 female candidates 30,010 candidates have qualified for the award of MSCE, representing 48.73 percent pass rate.

The statement said out of 74,714 male candidates 65,286 have qualified for the award of MSCE, presenting 60.61 percent pass rate.

”Out of 80,958 internal candidates who sat for this year’s examination, in at least six subjects including English, 46,422 have qualified for the award of MSCE representing 57.34% pass rate,” reads the statement in part.

And out of 26,741 external candidates who sat for the exams, 14,370 have passed, representing 53.74 percent pass rate.

According to the statement, out of 28,597 open candidates 14,504 have passed, representing 50.72 percent pass rate.

38 candidates have been disqualified in the examination for contravening MANEB regulations.

”The letter ‘D’ appears against the names of such candidates on the pass/fail list,” adds the statement.

In an interview with Nyasa Times, Maneb Public Relations Officer, Simeon Maganga, said 454 candidates have their results withheld pending investigations.

And candidates who wrote the exams without following entry procedures have nor been graded and their results do not appear on the pass/fail list.

Maneb says it will entertain queries from candidates channelled through Heads of Examination Centres not late than November 27, 2015.

This year’s results have seen a rise in the pass rate comparing to last year’s 54.8 percent.

For the past three years, the MSCE exams have been recording a successive increase in pass rate. In 2013 MSCE pass rate was 52.48 percent.

  2. Rodgers Banda says:

    Let’s hope they is no bias. I don’t trust this board.

  3. That is very encouraging. May the rise in passing percentege accompany quality of passing as well. Do not forget each has his or her own time. If this hasn’t been your time, do not worry yours is on the way.

    Quota system is here to stay. I come from Chiradzulo and I have twenty points and I am among only ten with six credits which are adding to twenty points or less. Definately I am UNIMA material. Mzuni ikuchepa. So don.t dream that ngw’engw’e can abandon quota system. Impossible. Till 2019 quota system will be there. Even JB did not dare to abolish it.

    Politically Motivated. No pass rate increase here.

  24. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    One of my parents is from the south, the other from the boundary between north and centre. I am annoyed: Exam conduct and results were treated as for one nation. Now selection to universities will be on quota system – dividing mother Malawi into regions.
    This is sinful!! Families like mine divided.

    Then when it comes to assisting the nation after education one assists anywhere. Conflict of the polices. Govt ministers like Chiponda and Fabiano’s minds ate evil, dividing and not civilized. One wonders whether education helped them. Do they fear God?

  28. nyekete nyongomkaka says:

    I totally agree wth # 12 that the results are manipulated to please the public/president because its not on for every passing rate to be around 50% ie out of boys,girls,on internals,externals…..xool ended in 2001 wen msce pass rate was below 30% n’ passing mark per subject was @ 37%. I understand this year passing mark was 11%,Ooooooops ! No wonder nowadays 6 points msce holders are many but are MALIKWETEZ.

  29. anthu alakwa kwambiri coz munatilembetsa mwaphuma(3 paperz/day)

  30. joseph chikoko says:

    The pass rate is quite good.However the releasing of results was delayed beyond expectation.This has affected our planning for our wards.

  31. Malawiyano says:

    This time selection to university should not be based on quarter system , those from Lhomwe Region with 100 points leave them just pick those with six points who are from Dead North .

  46. The Star says:

    Welcome to the world ladies and gentlemen. Having completed secondary school means you have acquired a lot of skills in Agriculture, commerce, literature and many more subjects, please don’t just sit at home rather use your knowledge by developing entreprenueral mindset and I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed. Remember entreprenuership is the only solution to unemployment. The future is in your hands.

  47. Mhesha says:

    The failure rate is very high because candidates are not working hard. Even at the university the weeding rate is also high.

  48. Lovepankysal says:

    Father God Let Me Be One Of The Most Successful Students..HELMEGO!

  49. Professor Linton Pamberiii says:

    Passing mark ya 11% zisiru a MANEB. IF PASSING MARK WAS AT 50% how many would have passed? Fokofo. Zomatsitsa passing mark so as to deceive the public as if we are making strides in education and at same time pleasing Pitara mathanyux is first class mediocrity. End result mumabweretsa ana mu university oti they are not fit into tertially education. This nosense got to stop now, I SAY NOW. NDIWIDA INE AMENEWO. I HAVE IT ON GOOD RECORD THAT THIS YEARS PASSING MARK WAS 11% SO AS TO PLEASE THE PRESIDENT. THIS IS BULL SHIT. TACTIC YOLOWETSERA MAPHUNZIRO PANSITU IMENEYI. MXIIIIIIII
