Ministry of Education Science and Technology (MoEST) has called for concerted efforts among stakeholders to make sure that the country maintains its stand of administering free leakage of national examinations.
MoEST Principal Secretary, Justin Saidi made the call at Chichiri Secondary School in Blantyre on Wednesday when he presided over the official opening of Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) examination review meeting.
“We are grateful to MANEB for the way it has been administering the national examinations over the years. Additionally, let me commend District Education Managers (DEM), District Commissioners (DC), Officer in Charges (OC), PEA’s, teachers as well as invigilators for playing critical roles in exam administrations,” he pointed out.
Saidi added that, “All these efforts from MANEB and the various stakeholders ensured that for past years, MANEB administered free leakage examinations at all levels. This is our success story and we are happy for this.”
MANEB Executive Director, Gerald Chiunda hailed the review meetings for providing a platform where stakeholders share experiences on how the previous examination was administered.
“Participants to this meeting are the ones who are on the ground managing the national exams hence that they help us in sharing experiences and lessons so that we can also do best in this year and years to come. We are able to gather information that is used when we are planning for our next examination,” he noted.
The meeting attracted different stakeholders including officers from district councils, Malawi Police Service and education officials who reviewed the 2017 examination administration at Primary School Leaving Certificate, Junior Certificate Examination and Malawi School Certificate of Education.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
