Students has applauded the Zimbabwe School Examination Council (ZIMSEC) for bringing back the June examinations after a long break since 2021 due to COVId-19 Pandemic.
In an interview with Sly Media,one student Charles Munyoro said that he is excited about the news of the return of June Examinations since he will be able to register for his failed subjects.
“I am so delighted after hearing the news that ZIMSEC has decided to bring back June exams because this will give me more time to prepare for the exams.
‘As a failed student I am so happy because it is just few months after I finished my O’ level and recently after collecting my results I noticed that I had some failed subjects which I can now write in June before some data in my head disappeared,” he said.
Another student, Mitchel Mugabe expressed her gratitude to the ZIMSEC board for making this move as she alluded that this will decrease the number of drug users in streets.
” This is a good step that has been taken because most of the drug abusers were these failed students who have nothing to do at home so they were ended up abusing drugs under the bridges.
“So I think by bringing back these June exams most of our fellow students who failed their exams will come back and register to write June so that they will have a brighter future other than spending time in the streets doing nothing” she said.
Speaking to ZIMSEC spokesperson Nicky Dhlamini confirmed that June examinations are back and students are required to register for their exams.
“Yes, there are June examinations this year, the school time table has gone back to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Registration is now open, June exam session registration is now open visit your school or center for registration details,” she said.
She added that the registration fee for June has never changed and the government will continue to fund these school.
“They are the same as last year the government continues to subsidize for government schools,” said Dhlamini.
