ZIMSEC yesterday released timetables for the 2021 Grade 7, Ordinary Level and Advanced Level examinations.
The timetable will see O-Level pupils sitting for their examinations from 22 November 2021 to 31 January 2022 after Covid-19 induced delays forced the writing period into next year.
Grade 7 pupils will write their first exam (English) on Monday 29 November 2021 before finishing on Friday 10 December with Social Science paper 2.
Wood, metal and textile technology and design subjects will kick-start the O-Level examinations on November 22 before concluding ten weeks later on Monday 31 January 2022 with Statistics and Economic History examinations.
Like the Grade 7 exams, A-Levels will commence on 29 November before finishing next year on Monday 24 January.
The third wave of Covid-19 that forced authorities to put the country on lockdown forced schools to close as one of the lockdown measures, reducing the school terms in the calendar year to only two.
