Parliamentary committee wants JC examination back

A parliamentary committee has told the government to bring back the Junior Certificate examination to improve education standards for Malawi School Certificate (MSCE) education.

Saidi:Need wider consultations

Parliamentary committee on Education chairperson Brenix Kaise says there was need for the ministry of Education to conduct urgent consultations with other stakeholders on the matter.

“We want the examinations to be restored basing on the poor performance of this year’s Malawi School Certificate of Education examinations results,” said Kaise.

Chairperson of Independent Private Schools Association Joseph Patel said he supports the idea of bringing back the JC examinations.

Ministry of Education principal secretary Justin Saidi said the issue needs wide consultations and views before a final decision is made.

No wonder the government of the -blue government has nothing to do for development of this country. At this juncture,please consultations are not even necessary for bring back JCE. Just do what is need to be done. Sometimes zimachita kuoneka kuti even munthu wosapita kusukulu ngati ine,,,nditha kukhalaso wa nzeru kuposa ma pulofesa awa.

That’s a great move.Jce was at the heart of successful Msce , taking it out left candidates indolent and unchecked.Proper procedures were not followed at a legal perspective to effect the move.We pray,therefore,a prompt restoration of the same,without which,the government shouldn’t be alarmed when demos on the same hookup.

When removing JCE you did not do the wide consultations. Now after the general outcry from the public you say you want wide consultations; please don’t waste our time just do the needful

just do the needful . Why consult now when you did not at first. We told you koma poti ndinu you disregarded us. The problem with these so called policy analysits they all want to be relevant. Once they are at the helm of policy making in the ministry they would like to show off that they are the best and their predessesor is useless. See how it has backfired.

I am crying for my beloved poor Malawi. It seems we do not really know what we really want or need. Especially when it comes to crucial issues of national importance like Education, Agriculture, Health, Environment and even Security . – Why should we fail to recruit trained and qualified medical personnel when we keep saying that our hospitals are grossly under staffed. -It puzzles me as to why Malawi is always food insecure because of droughts even when we have adequate waters in our lake. -We have been complaining about the wanton cutting down of trees or deforestation but… Read more »

No need to consult widely, JCE needs to be back. Removing this paper was done by a few selfish people who do not wish malawi education to go up

Just bring the exams back. After all, exams were administered using taxpayers’ money not even a Cabinet Ministers’ money. We need it soon in our secondary schools (private or public school). No wider consultations Mr Edu. PS. Your kids plus fellow big men and women are outside Malawi learning comfortably, but you want to mess up with kids’ education in Malawi. Malawians are the key stakeholders on this matter, who else do you want to consult further, Americans, Europeans, donors, World Bank Group, etc?
