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.

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.
