MCP pakampeni munalonjeza zambiri ngati kuika bullet train between BT & LL, a railway line to Mzuzi, a twenty storey hostels at Chancellor College and Poly, reintroduction of JCE and no surprise munawina. But ask yourself soberly do we really need those things? JCE for what guys. Spending over K5 billion for certificate that many will use as a toilet tissue paper. Then why not bring back the National Standard 5 Examination phased out in 1984 for primary school students to have a feel of how a national examination is like before they write PSLCE?

JCE is indeed useless. Say a girl fails her JC gets married,and a chief brings her back to school,which class will she go in? She failed before she got married,will she now pass?

No wonder people buy degrees,in the mistaken belief they become educated when they have a certificate. Now a whole Goverment can’t see the folly of JCE? Let’s not politicize peoples futures. What will a 13 year old who has failed JC do with their life? JCE kills… Read more »

Definitely agree with you about putting what we want in our society in our education system. I think not doing this is exactly what led us to this unemployment crisis we’re facing. So many great minds just do what appeals to them without thinking about its practical application to society’s needs.

Instead of introducing ‘A’ Levels and/or vocational qualifications, you are now bringing back the useless JCE. Most Malawian students are finding it hard to obtain undergraduate admission in international schools because of lack of ‘A’ level qualifications

Our literacy levels are too low. Only 300 000 seating for Plc, half of them drop out,about 157 000 seat for M.s.c.e no wonder we are poor. We can’t even choose good leaders and keep them accountable. It’s a huge problem
