Government yesterday suspended the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) Ordinary and Advanced Level June examinations.
Speaking after a cabinet briefing, Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Monica Mutsvangwa, said the next public examination will be conducted in November.
“Cabinet informs that the Zimsec June 2021 examinations have been suspended.
“The next examinations will be in November 2021,” said minister Mutsvangwa.
Last year, when the country first introduced lockdown measures, candidates were allowed to complete both exams albeit strict adherence to World Health Organisation (WHO) protocols.
Due to the Covid-19 induced learning, 2020 O-Level and A- Level candidates are yet to receive their results.
Meanwhile, other cabinet decisions arrived at yesterday include the pegging of local passports prices at RTGS equivalent of US$60 for the ordinary and US$200 for the emergency passport.
Casinos will now be allowed to reopen under strict observance of Covid-19 observance with those found disregarding the guidelines facing possible revocation of their licences.
