Malawians poke MANEB over MSCE exam results

The Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) has quashed the news going viral on the social media that this year’s Malawi School Certificate of Examinations (MSCE) results are out.

Maganga: MSCE results not yet in

Maganga: MSCE results not yet in

Maneb spokesperson, Simeon Maganga has pointed out that the national examinations board has noted with great concern the spread of “false news” on social media about the release of 2015 MSCE examination results.

“The truth of the matter is that processing of this examination is still underway hence the ‘news’ is a total lie. As per tradition, MANEB in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, will announce the release of the results as soon as processing is finished in the soonest possible time,” explains Maganga.

Although the news has been received with enthusiasm the said 2015 MSCE exam results gives two pass rates in the referred to statement; 58.8 and 54.8 percent.

“Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology have finally released the much awaited Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations with 58.8 percentage pass rate,” reads in part the purported Maneb media statement.

“Out of 136,382 candidates who wrote the examinations, 71,486 have qualified for the award of MSCE certificate representing 54.8 percent pass rate. Only 26 candidates were disqualified for the award of MSCE certificate for failing to adhere to examination regulations,” adds the fake statement.

A closer look at the statistics outlined in the said press release shows that it is a doctored document from last year’s Maneb press release which came out second week of October. Some of the figures are either exact or slightly twisted.

The motive behind such a move is not yet known but people speculate that this shows that they would want the results out the soonest. Last year’s pass rate was 54.8 percent.
